Johnny's homebuilt 8080 CPU corner (and other stuff, maybe)
The 8080 MKII, MKII-B and MKII-C CPU all needs a BUS, where memory and IO cards can be placed.
I opted to use a 64 line BUS, mostly because I found this one..:
More over, I needed a name for it, like S-100, S-50 and so on. I choosed the name : XBUS (and why not?)
Connecting the 8080 to a BUS - XBUS
To join the Homebuilt CPUs ring, drop Warren a line, mentioning your page's URL. He'll then add it to the list.
You will need to copy this code fragment into your page (or reference it.)
Note: The ring is chartered for projects that include a home-built CPU. It can emulate a commercial part, that′s OK.
But actually using that commercial CPU doesn′t rate. Likewise, the project must have been at least partially built: pure paper designs don′t rate either.
It can be built using any technology you like, from relays to FPGAs.
