I uploaded two new Simon ROMs, version D1 and D1b. I found these files while I was preparing a new Simon. I'm just posting them so if anybody finds anything useful. (I'm shipping Simon6809 with D1b version).

Simon says “hello world”

Last few weeks, I have been learning vhdl to port Simon6809 and Simon6809Turbo to altera fpga board, de1.

Here is the first run of the 6809 processor and simon6809 monitor code.

I borrowed the cpu from John Kent's website.

I'm not going to release the code yet because it is my first real vhdl coding.  so i don't want to embarrass myself.

One thing I realized is regular uart is WAAY slower than ftdi.

Hello world!

Seriously...

I grew up in 1980’s Where computers took the whole world suddenly.  we were worried about artifical intelligence taking over, and then 1990’s and y2k problems.  good ol’ days.

I love 8-bit microprocessors.  this page is dedicated to 8-bit everything, including computers, music, art, lifestyle, anything you can think of.

I have been thinking about creating a website like this for a long time.

So, this is my very first posting.  It should give you an idea of what I like:

Kudos to rymdreglage.
