Hardware, Embedded Systems "The arithmetic-logic unit is a fundamental part of any computer, performing addition, subtraction, and logic operations, but how it works is a mystery to many people. I've reverse-engineered the ALU circuit from the 8085 microprocessor and explain how it works. The 8085's ALU is a surprisingly complex circuit that at first looks like a mysterious jumble of gates, but it can be understood if you don't mind diving into some Boolean logic."

Now waiting for the guy who will write an 8085 emulator in javascript. Srsly!


Well, so far, they've managed to emulate its performance so they're part way there already.
