Anyone programmed on a Apple CPU

MI_7MI_7 Member Posts: 36 ✭✭
I made an OS for the 8086 CPU but I wanted to run
this os on a Apple.

Is the Apple CPU different from 8086??

and Where can i find details on this?

    : Is the Apple CPU different from 8086?? The CPU in the Apple CPU is based on the 6500 series of processors. Much different than the 8086. For the Apple II+ 6502, Apple //e,c 65c02, Apple //gs 65c816

    You can get data sheets directly from the manufacture:

    I hope this helps. Also note, that the source for the Apple is readily available. I have ported this O/S to many other uP due to its simplistic interface and ease of use. Woz did a great job on the whole Apple series.

    Which Apple Computer are you refering to?

    Apple 2 and variants, 2GS, 2GS+, Apple 3 use.

    The 6502, 65C02, 65C802 and 65C816 in the GS & GS+.

    Then the Macs start with the 68000 CPU, on up the scale
    it goes through the 88000 (Apple Mac Centris), Power PC CPU
    start in the Apple Mac Quadra, etc. That was an interesting
    time, I had all the high Macs of the time.

    The difference between the Intel type processors and
    the 65 or 68 series processors is that the Intels have
    more registers in them, you know the AX, AH, AL, CX, etc. blah blah
    blah. You know what I mean. The 65 and 68 series don't have
    all those registers they are kinda bare when it comes to that,
    they use memory for storing all the values for the most part.
    They have index registers, that can help as counters, etc.
    They have one accumulator, and a couple of other things. I could
    give you the exact differences and the programming modes of the
    CPUs you are targeting.

    Let me know what Apple you have in mind.
