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

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"...
