I thought, it would be nice to be able to access the expansion port signals, while a cartridge is inserted. This would be quite helpful for debugging a cartrdge with a scope or logic analyzer. Further, it would be nice to be able to disable some of the chip selects, interrupts and control signals, too.
Those are: ● /ROML ● /ROMH ● /IO1 ● /IO2 ● /IRQ ● /NMI ● /RESET ● /GAME ● /EXROM ● /DMA The signals are jumpered. Pulling the jumper is disabling them. There is also +5V and GND on this jumper. Theoretically, it would be possible to manipulate the signals with a micro controller/arduino for analyzing a cartridge.
The box connector allows to access all signals on the C64 side. Further, this can serve for breadboarding a cartridge.
