CPU From Scratch

I haven't been posting too much lately, mostly because I have taken on a very ambitious project. I have decided to create an entire CPU from scratch using only TTL based logic. This project has been in the works for about two months now and I finally have something to show for it. Because this project is going to be more in-depth than most I have dedicated an entire wiki to it which can be located at

As it stands now I have an 8-bit CPU that is able to load and store instructions into address and instruction registers from memory. This proves (along with a lot of additional debugging) that my design seems solid and I can begin designing my opcode and burning it to eproms. I will update this blog when I make major milestones, but all the technical data will be located at
