    If you want to follow along with this series and build your own, I'm now selling complete kits! Check out https://eater.net/8bit/kits.

    This is valuable content

    This project puts the Raspberry Pi as "An educational tool" TO SHAME. If you want to know how computers actually work (and not how to install a Linux distro!) you NEED to get these to children.

    BUT THE QUESTION IS… CAN IT FLY ME TO THE MOON?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    TIP: Use an old gray ESDshielded bag as a light filter on the LED 7-SEGMENT DISPLAYS – makes see the counter much easier.

    best explication i have ever seen, thank you ++++

  7. Nathan Apolonio says

    1:00 I have found a link for downloading the book. Here is the link: https://www.academia.edu/40474484/Digital_Computer_Electronics_Albert_Paul_Malvino

  9. Gordon Moore says

    Thank you so much Ben for this excellent series. I had struggled to understand what was meant by micro-programming, I just couldn't get my head around it's intricacies. I knew about the topic from the papers of the EDSAC designer Maurice Wilkes, who got the idea from the Moore school of computing and ENIAC(I think). But Wilkes wrote quite a few papers on the topic. His idea was to use an array of germanium diodes as the control store. The idea being that you could plug in a new array if you wanted a different set of operations – your EPROM.) Now however, thanks to this excellent series I understand the requirement for the correct sequencing of control signals to make sure things happen correctly.
    Could I suggest a video or two that picks out the highlights of what you have done. It's a lot of viewing for students in a class to get the basic ideas.
    I'm going to build my own 8 bit, but I think I'm going to design a different version using an address and data bus and probably hard wired control logic. Maybe! I'm getting the parts together. Keep me busy whilst looking for work anyhow. 🙂

  10. Mohamed Almosawi says

    if u made s mistake uploading the binary code would that just be an error and not be exited or it is possible to make an electronic short and bad things

  11. Max Masterton says

    Hopefully you can find a used copy for $100

  12. Ly Nguyen Dinh says

    Do you open school for computer science? I want to apply to learn computer science.

  13. Michael Nolan says

    I will begin this journey … but I'm in a part of the world where I'm not sure it can get delivered so I'm sourcing parts locally.

  14. Edward Nunez says

    For anyone starting out on this project, the book Code by Charles Petzold is the perfect campaign to this. Crash Course Computers video series is also a very good addition. All describing the same thing from a different angle.

  15. MiningwithPudding says

    I stumbled across your channel on a recommendation after watching a video for class. and now I'm hooked.

  16. premal upadhyay says

    Or please mail me premalupadhyay56@gmail.com i really need your help, i wanna make real processor…

  17. premal upadhyay says

    Can you make video for guiding, how to build processor from scratch using VLSI design not on bread board although bread board is good for understanding but not for manufacturing, i know it's very big project, so that's why ask you, i need your help, please guide in this…

  18. Yulian David Vargas Chiquiza says

    Corre Fornite ??

  19. Richard McLaughlin says

    Are there LED's connected here that do not have current limiting resistors?

  20. Nick Mason says

    Hi from the UK. I realise that I'm somewhat late to the party but being in lock down due to Covid-19 means I have some time on my hands. I decided to rekindle my interest in electronics and came across this playlist. I've already built the clock module and the EEPROM programmer. I'm now waiting for a few ICs from eBay so I can start the Register build. I'm really enjoying myself, thank you.

  21. Rahul singh says

    Glad that i found your channel….

  22. bluegru says

    Wonder how this would look like without ICs

  23. Milton Maldonado Junior says

    Great job! Your work inspired me to write a (yet another) software simulation of your computer, but this one is different… It simulates EVERY TTL and memory chip, exactly like in the original project. The only parts I left out were the 555 oscillators (they have been modelled as abstract oscillators), but the rest is really the same. The project is almost finished (I'm about to implement the FLAGS register). The project is hosted in GitHub: https://github.com/ARMCoderBR/tlsim

  24. Dr. M. H. says

    Brilliant, Ben.
    Ya can't rush perfection

  25. Chishti Academy says

    I have made animation of SAP-1 (8-bit Computer) in Microsoft Power Point. Please see this video

  26. ludwig josh says

    Can you put the playlist in order

  27. Bruno Gavloski says

    I can do this in Proteus 8?

  28. Aljiven Alejo says

    Thanks Ben because I can make 16bit pc that my I used to make my own hand held game

  29. minhaz uddin says

    Create a camera interface card

    Create a camera interface card

  31. Fox Anderson says

    You're a hero

  32. tberry7348 says

    the book is still buyable if you have over $200 just lying arround…

  33. Brecht says

    very nice.

  34. J C says

    that book is thicc, though!

  35. John Durgan says

    I just bought the whole kit. I've never done this before, but am really looking forward to trying it.

  36. Caio Ferreira says

    Here 4 years later, thanks a lot for your content!!

  37. indrajit sinh says

    have a look at vu3inj.blogspot.com for qrp related homebrews.

  38. Jonathan Schatz says

    What kind of hookup wire do you use? My wire is 22 AWG, but seems to be a lot thicker than yours (maybe the insulation?), and seems to be a lot harder to be as neat as you.

  40. Johan Silva Cueva says

    EXCELLENT BEN

  41. James Goacher says

    That is wonderful.

  42. saranraja says

    Hey bro ! Love you buddy

  43. Lincoln Chamberlin says

    Great series. I'm curious, did you think that you would still be doing this same project 3 years later?

  44. Diego Linares says

    Can it run Minecraft?

  45. Jason Perry says

    This is AWESOME Ben. I begged my parents for a C-64 for several years until the prices came down enough for them to get one for Christmas circa 1984. Some people don't believe that "passion" can't possibly be applied to a career choice. I beg to differ. Computers still amaze me and are the reason why I haven't worked a day in my life… Well, unless you count my paper route and bagging groceries during high school 😉

  46. duc nguyen says

    Amazing

  47. ppdan says

    Now redo the whole thing and only use discrete components 😀
    Thanks a lot for the videos.

  48. Q.D. White says

    This video series could have saved me about $3000 in tuition fees.
