1996-10-31 129880 250469-rev.B-right.gif Commodore 64c rev.A and rev.B (new design). The 64c boards have the following texts: PCB ASSY NO. 250469 and PCB NO. 252311 REV.A (or B on newer boards). The difference between the two revisions is in the Gate Array chip: The one in rev.B includes COLOR RAM. That is why only the right half of the schematic diagram differs. The REV.A schematics also has the part number 252312.

1998-04-24 230917 252278-2.gif Commodore 64 schematic diagram 252278. This seems to be an intermediate cost-reduced version, with 64kb4 memory chips but small ROMs.

1996-11-16 24774 c64-cassette-io.gif A block diagram of the Commodore 64 cassette I/O circuitry. Taken from the SAMS C64 Troubleshooting Guide.
1996-11-16 31193 c64-powersupply.gif A block diagram of the Commodore 64 internal power supply (how the +12V, +9V and TOD clock signals are generated from the 9V AC input). Taken from the SAMS C64 Troubleshooting Guide.
1996-11-16 52036 c64-r1.chips.gif A chip location diagram of the first C64 board revision. Assy number unknown, or maybe 251138. Taken from the SAMS C64 Troubleshooting Guide.
1996-11-16 22896 c64-video.gif A block diagram of the video circuitry in the first C64 board revision. Taken from the SAMS C64 Troubleshooting Guide.
1996-05-08 29785 c64bus.gif A block diagram of the bus signals in the C64.
1999-04-05 21785 c64extps.gif Commodore 64 Power Supply, part no. 902503-02, input 116V 60Hz 40W. This is the North American power supply that can be taken apart. The schematic was drawn by William Levak. According to him, the transistor and the 300 ohm resistor can be removed and replaced with a standard +5V 750mA voltage regulator, which is much more reliable.

1997-01-21 174251 prg-vic-right.gif Commodore 64 schematic diagram, scanned with 360 DPI, 2 colours. This seems to be the same (buggy) schematic that was published in the Commodore 64 Programmer's Reference Guide, but has been partially translated into German.
The vic part contains the ROMs, SIDs, Video Controller, RAMs, Address-decoding, Expansion Port and User Port.
The cpu part contains the Port elements (CIA), CPU, AC-Adaptor, Timer, Port Layout
All resistors are 0.25W 5% and all capacitors are in F, unless otherwise stated.
