CPUville is dedicated to the computer electronics hobby. The projects and kits here reflect my interest in basic computer hardware. The computers here are simple, and presented in a way that I hope will make them easy to understand. Here are the main things you will find here:
This kit is a simple 8-bit computer processor that you can build. It is a challenging project, implemented on three printed circuit boards, for the arithmetic-logic unit, the control logic, and the main board. All details of the processor design and construction are open for study.
I have a series of kits for sale for a simple Z80 microcomputer that can be assembled by hobbyists or students with average soldering skills. The kits progress from a bare-bones system board up to a system with a disk interface capable of running the CP/M operating system.
This project is the prototype for the 8-bit computer processor kit. Here you will find details of development of this processor, and explanations of the design.
These are pages explaining the basic elements of computer electronics
