Diagnostic Cartridge for C64/C128 (C128 in C64 mode).

Reset button available.

Diagnostic cartridge jumper configuration guide:

 2  C64 Diagnostic rev.586220  8K  no  1  1  2

The cartridge is upgradable with a DIP28 EPROM up to 27c512: 27c64, 27c128, 27c256 or 27c512.
The EPROM can be configured with 8K/16K/ULTIMAX ROM images. So you can prepare your own EPROM with the games, utilities, programs you want. Here the complete jumper configuration guide.

Three more jumpers are provided in order to handle the second EPROM.

I can prepare custom EPROM configuration according to the user needs.

Notice
This patch is necessary for the boards revision 1.0 and only in the case you want to install both the eprom (PLCC and DIP) on the board.

Solder two resistors, any value from 2.2K to 10K 1/4W is good, in the back of the board.
