Great Microprocessors of the Past and Present : This list is not intended to be an exhaustive compilation of microprocessors, but rather a description of designs that are either unique, or representative designs typical of the period, not necessarily the first of their kind, or the best. It includes material from text books, magazine articles and papers, authoritative descriptions and half remembered folklore from obscure sources, as such, it has no bibliography or list of references. via Linkfilter. It gets a little technical at times, but it's interesting reading if you're into the guts of these fun little toys!

Awesome, thanks!

I'll be reading this a lot, tons of interesting info. Nothing educates more about a technical field than looking at various designs used.

Ahhh, memories of programming the 6502 in assembly language come flooding back.

I know the man who built this. Truly, one of the greatest nerds of all time; and I mean that as a compliment.
