Internet Sites of Interest
Whenever I start a new project I scrounge around the Internet to see what other people have done or to help verify an idea that I had. This usually helps me from completely reinventing the wheel and avoid pitfalls that other folks have run into. Below are links that I have found helpful in one way or another on this project.
6502.org - The 6502 processor resource. This site really is the holy grail for the 6502 processor. They have tutorials, links to projects, documentation and much much more. This is another site I would recommend you visit on your journey.
Blondihacks - Blondihacks is a blog run by Quinn Dunki. She has done a great job interfacing a 6502 processor while showing her journey along the way. She also has information of a Hex display and printed circuit board fabrication and some other stuff. It is a good read and I recommend it to anyone interested in the topic.
WilsonMinesCo.com - This site has a great tutorial on using the 6502 processor. He lays out clocking, address decoding, I/O IC's, Displays, Programming and much much more. It is a treasure trove of information just waiting for the would be 6502 interface maker. Check it out, it will be worth your time and effort.
Resources, Resources, Resources
Whenever I start a project, I am always scrounging the Internet, Books and what ever else I can find to help me accomplish my goals or answer my questions. Sometimes they are easy to find and other times, well let's just say they are like little jewels hidden from the casual treasure hunter. Well, I will post whatever I find here that may be of interest or help to you in the event you want some extra reading.
