: The 8080 Has been around for years ! Can I ask why you are wanting to use that old dog? I am an electrical engineer and have allot of experience with x86, 8085, 8080, Z80, and PIC. I also have a web site
: that deals with Data Acquisition and the PC .
I am wanting similar information, but for CPUs like the AMD486SX/DX/66/100.
I want to use the CPU for the brain of my ... robot. I researched using a BASIC Stamp or the ATOM-40M, but I am thinking using an AMD486 should be do-able and also a bit easier to aquire.
I am also wanting internal architecture such as the registers and how they interact. I have a post in the programming board... I am writing a processor simulator (not processor specific at this time). I think if I get the basics down on my simulator, I should just be able to rearrange it to match a specific processor. I also need like opcodes, and data bus interfacing, program storage, RAM access, maybe sound or sound card support.
I simply want a bit smart bot than a BASIC Stamp or ATOM would provide.
The search for knowledge is endless.
