_ein_kek's Builder Application

Name: _ein_kek

I have a general interest in old 80’s-90’s era computers. Redstone is a great learning-tool when it comes to understanding the actual hardware.

I modified a harvard style cpu (from a tutorial series by n00basaurus) to von neumann architecture using a state machine as control unit. Basically i took the Alu, dual and single read registers, some decoders and a programcounter module and put them together. All instructions have to be fetched from RAM and executed one at a time. This far i’ve programmed the Collatz problem and the fibonacci sequence.
It has access to 256 bytes of ram, instructions can be 8 bits long but do not have a limit in execution steps (sorry im not good at explaining this). Basically one instruction can have endless steps.


Im planning to build an 8 bit ALU.

I agree with the rules. :slight_smile:

I’d recommend just keeping the ALU 4 Bits for the trial, makes things easier when we don’t need to test twice as many inputs xp.

This application has been accepted! Whenever both you and a staff member are free, feel free to ask them for a trial. You are able to try again after failing and waiting 24 hours. It is always recommended to do a practice trial with another member before starting your real one.
