To other sites of technical interest to the Apple FPGA Designer
Vtech, one of the more advanced Apple cloners, supposedly cloned the Apple IIgs back in 1989. To date, I haven't seen any evidence of this machine, but if it does exist, I would really love to get hold of their source CAD documents or schematics.
As the names says (in binary!) - Its all about eight bit computers
Amazing history about Apple and how they got it right (and sometimes wrong)
In 1988, Apple produced a powerful video card capable of VGA style resolutions. This was called the "Apple Video Overlay Card". As part of the Apple IIe and IIgs projects, we are hoping to include this fine piece of hardware history in the design. If anyone has any information, schematics or firmware they are able to share with us, it would be much appreciated.
