SWTP GT-6144 Interface Schematic

This information is taken from the schematic for the hook up of the Apple1 to the SWTP GT-6144 graphics board, refer to it while reading this, especially on the PIA pins , 23, 34, 35, 37 and 38.

The chip on the left is for the PIA for the graphic board. All pins marked with a * are connected to the corresponding pin on the keyboard PIA, pins 1, 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36.

Interfacing a SWTP GT-6144 to an Apple I

INTERFACING A SWTP GT-6144 GRAPHICS KIT TO AN APPLE I MICROPROCESSOR

 

The STWP graphics board displays a picture made of a 64 X 96 array of rectangles. The schematic I've enclosed is pretty straigt forward. The .006 MFD capacitor connected between pins 6 and 7 of the 74123 controls the length of time that must elapse between each output of date to the GT-6144. I've been unable to load the date faster than the .005 capacitor will allow.
