The 6502 was the CPU in my first computer (an Apple II plus), as well as many other popular home computers of the late 1970s and 80s. It lived on well into the 1990s in game consoles and chess computers, mostly in its updated “65C02” CMOS version. Here’s a re-implementation of the 65C02 in an FPGA, in a pin-compatible format that lets you upgrade those old computers and games to 100 MHz clock rate!
This week on OSNEWS just rocks for me, first it was calculators, now it’s back to my beginnings on 6502 Assembly!
I wonder if it would work in one of these beauties?
