Build An 8-Bit CPU From Scratch Part IV
April 22, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm
The CPU or “brain” of a computer: Ever wondered how they function? or even wondered how complicated and intricate they are?
Join us for a four-part series to learn more about how CPU’s function. Participate in building a functioning 8-bit CPU from scratch. We will watch instructional videos from Ben Eater before jumping in and assembling a different component of his 8-bit breadboard computer kits at the end of each session. We’ve nearly completed building an entire CPU from scratch! For this last session, we will finish off the 8-bit CPU by adding the Output and Control Logic.
1) Watch informational and instructional videos from Ben Eater’s YouTube channel where he teaches us about different components of a CPU and assembles his breadboard computer kit.
2) Assemble another part of the 8-bit breadboard computer kit based on what we learned from Ben Eater. In this session, we will finish the CPU off with the Output and Control Logic.
