Can anyone tell how I would wire up an AMD CPU to be controlled by switches? There should be an input to the CPU, that is usually fed OPCODES by something (ROM). I know there is a Clock as well. Is the AMD 486 64-bit, 32-bit, 16-bit 8-bit??? Basically for educational purposes, I want to have 8, 16, 32, etc, on/off switches to apply opcodes to the processor and a pushbutton to control the clock ticks. I know CPUs usually work off a clock at XXXX MHz. But if they only get the clock tick signal at a push of a button, I should be able to control the cycle of a CPU and test the outputs (depending on the OPCODE of course).
The search for knowledge is endless.
