Using a 8080 processor


Hi !

I want to begin with construction of a microprocessor system based on a 8080 proc. I already have collected a lot of documentation about it, but I'd like to know someone, who would be able to give me a tip sometimes, when i'll have some problem with it. I think it's a good idea, and I could also write an OS for it and use it for anything, but it's quiet difficult (it seems).

If exists any MANIAC, like me, mail to me,

thanks.

    The 8080 Has been around for years ! Can I ask why you are wanting to use that old dog? I am an electrical engineer and have allot of experience with x86, 8085, 8080, Z80, and PIC. I also have a web site
    that deals with Data Acquisition and the PC .

    Hi,
    I am a frenchman and I also build 8080 system and
    8085 systems for my pleasure.
    More especially 8085 because I have pieces here.

    If you need some info, plese mail me at
    [email protected]

    I'm also searching 8008 and 4004 components.

    Best regards,
    Frdric

    I am wanting similar information, but for CPUs like the AMD486SX/DX/66/100.

    I want to use the CPU for the brain of my ... robot. I researched using a BASIC Stamp or the ATOM-40M, but I am thinking using an AMD486 should be do-able and also a bit easier to aquire.

    I am also wanting internal architecture such as the registers and how they interact. I have a post in the programming board... I am writing a processor simulator (not processor specific at this time). I think if I get the basics down on my simulator, I should just be able to rearrange it to match a specific processor. I also need like opcodes, and data bus interfacing, program storage, RAM access, maybe sound or sound card support.

    I simply want a bit smart bot than a BASIC Stamp or ATOM would provide.
