Hardware, Embedded Systems "With fond memories of educational titles like 'Granny's Garden', and less educational ones like 'Pole Position' and 'Boffin', the BBC B seemed like a worthy machine to bring back to life inside an FPGA." The Hacker News thread has links to more FPGA implementations of older home computers.

The main problem with the Electron was that it was a bit of a rush job. They replaced a whole load of discrete electronics with an ASIC and then lopped off mode 7. It had most of the "cool" I/O removed and really wasn't 100% compatible with BBC software.
