Build An 8-Bit CPU From Scratch Part III

#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. We now have a breadboard computer that has a completed Clock Module, RAM, and Arithmetic Logic Unit(ALU). For this session, we will add RAM and the Program Counter (PC) to the CPU.

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 RAM and Program Counter (PC).
