In this part I’ll design the 4-phase-clock of this CPU and I’ll connect all the missing connections between the components. Continue reading How to design your own CPU from scratch – Part 4
In this part of the series I’ll show you the necessary components for storing and executing programs on our micro processor! I’ll try to keep this part quite short, because I already explained in detail what a micro-instruction is and what it consists of on this CPU in part 2! So, let’s get the ball rolling. Continue reading How to design your own CPU from scratch – Part 3
In the first part of this series I discussed the ALU of our CPU. In this part we’ll take a look at the data and program storage and how to address the data. I’ll also discuss how the ALU is controlled. Continue reading How to design your own CPU from scratch – Part 2
I’m planning to make this a larger series of articles and videos about how to build your completely custom computer from scratch. I also plan to write an OS for the machine later (planned for summer 2018). Continue reading How to design your own CPU from scratch – Part 1
Just a real quick update about the project. Continue reading Homemade DIY word clock – A quick update
I have taken apart several old computers this weekend and so I had several old PSU laying around afterwards. I opened one up that was known to be faulty, that’s why I got the computer for free. So I took a quick look inside and several caps were leaking. I decided not to throw it away, instead I repaired the PSU and gave the internals a new life. I actually had this idea years ago but I didn’t have a spare PSU I could take apart. Here is a rough guide on how to build your own power supply for almost no cost at all! Continue reading Quick build: DIY bench power supply from an old computer’s PSU
Some time ago I wrote an article about how to get started with Windows 10 App development. This article will introduce you to Mac-Apps and will guide you through the process of programming one with Xamarin and C#.
Easy to follow video included at the end of the article.
