ROL’s current memory map supports two 8K EEPROMS for its software. So far, I’ve only been using ROM 0 at address $e000 to $ffff and ROM 1, at $c000 to $dfff, has been stuck in the breadboard, filled with $EAs (the 6502 NOP). The chips I’m using are some AT28HC64Bs. These chips are 150ns. With… Continue reading The EEPROM

After getting the Jump Bug straightened out, I decided to double-check the 65c22s and make sure they worked as expected and then try to get the LCD display working. I tested all four 65c22s by hooking both ports up to an LED bar and then sending a bit pattern to each one. After they all… Continue reading I AM ROL

In the last post, I mentioned a bug I was working on that would cause all 0s to appear on the data bus after a JSR instruction was executed. This bug turned out to be way more elusive and time-sinking than it should have been. When I had finished wiring up the basic system (EEPROMs,… Continue reading The Jump Bug

At some point, around 2017 or so, I read something about someone who was putting together a computer based on a 6502 microprocessor. It piqued my interest. I started seeing several other such projects popping up. I did more research, mostly at Eventually, I designed my own system and made a schematic. I named… Continue reading ROL Lives
