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."

I honestly show full interest into the 68000 stuff you done ! That would complete the only two pictures of the chip virtual6502 made about the 68k cpu. If we could simulate it, at an electrical level, that would be awesome ;)
