|Synertek VIM-1||by Bill Degnan - 09/12/2011 23:42|
The Synertek VIM-1 single board computer from 1978 was engineered around the 6502 processor and was very similar to the MOS/Commodore KIM-1. Later versions of the VIM-1 were renamed SYM-1 at some point early in production, making the VIM-1 rare, but also more likely to be "buggy". Note the message "SY1.0" that appears in the display.
I actually have two VIM-1 computers, they both boot to the SY1.0 monitor screen, so far, I will post updates as things progress.
