Build An 8-Bit CPU From Scratch Part II

#ben #eater #8-bit #cpu #breadboard #hardware

The CPU or "brain" of a computer: Ever wondered how they function? or even wondered how complicated and intricate they are? 
Join us for a four-part series to learn more about how CPU's function. Participate in building a functioning 8-bit CPU from scratch. We will watch instructional videos from Ben Eater before jumping in and assembling a different component of his 8-bit breadboard computer kits at the end of each session. For this session, we will continue where we left off after completing the Clock Module and add the Registers and Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU).

1) Watch informational and instructional videos from Ben Eater's YouTube channel where he teaches us about different components of a CPU and assembles his breadboard computer kit.

2) Assemble another part of the 8-bit breadboard computer kit based on what we learned from Ben Eater. In this session, we will assemble the Registers and Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) of the CPU.
