MyCPU

Post by ry755 » Thu Nov 23, 2017 8:50 pm

Have you guys seen the MyCPU? It's an 8 bit CPU that, except for stuff like Ram, EEPROM, etc., is made completely out of logic gates! The website is even being hosted by it.

http://www.mycpu.eu/

It can run up to 8 MHZ if using high speed logic gates. It uses a backplane with different cards/modules. For example the CPU is on one and there is an interrupt controller on another. I think it's pretty cool.

Wow, impressive! And it can run software that emulates a 16-bit CPU.

Wild stuff for sure! :) It seems to be some 6502 knock-off by the way based on the information on the site, not a bad choice actually, this way it was likely much simpler to get a software library for it reasonably fast!

very cool! :)

how big would MyCpu be if you are using transistors instead of logic gates? :lol:
The last digit of Pi is 7! I calculated this, as I counted to infinity yesterday!
