Hardware, Embedded Systems "In this article, I show at the transistor and silicon level. I've discussed the mathematics of the 6502 overflow flag earlier and thought it would be interesting to look at the actual chip-level implementation. Even though the overflow flag is a slightly obscure feature, its circuit is simple enough that it can be explained at the silicon level."

Yes, 6502s are still in use today in the embedded space. Search for "65C02", there's also the 16-bit version "65C816".

Edit: That was supposed to be a reply to above, I got confused with the silly interstitial log in form.
