Actually, could someone send me a link to the design for that thing. Like others, I wouldn't want to duplicate it, but a clearer idea of how it works would be a big help in making something similar. Send links to SparkyWatt@yourScienceQuestions.org

Sure, you could call it a "bean counter"

In 80-s I was in a team who made electronics for "Buran" lunch. And there one of computers was 1-bit... Therefore I well know that item. You can see some photo here. http://iosifk.narod.ru/cosmos.html I need some time for the translation. Here are references to my articles on my site... http://iosifk.narod.ru/one_bit_cpu1.pdf http://iosifk.narod.ru/one_bit_cpu2.pdf and this is a project http://iosifk.narod.ru/selfmade_cpu2.zip

Can you translate that article for me to publish it on Programmable Logic Designline?

OK, 8 years ago I did the project in FPGA. There there were two processors - with the 16 bit command bus and the 17 bits data bus, and other processor with the 1 bit bus. Then I have published about it article in Russian. In magazine "Components and Technologies"...

Just as well, because I can't find any in my bins.

Um, just in case anybody needs an assembler or disassembler for it: http://www.linurs.org/mc14500.html

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
