65uino with pinout

The 65uino is a 6502 based learning platform in a familiar form factor. It has a 6507 CPU, a 6532 RIOT chip and a 28 pin ROM as the core components and aims to teach assembly programming, computer engineering and embedded design by opening up the black box of modern MCU’s.

By going back to a time where the integrated circuits each mostly did their own thing, the 65uino hopes to give a better and faster understanding of the basic concepts that’ll typically be abstracted away nowadays.

The project is 100% open source and you’ll find all the details over on hackaday.io so check it out and follow along!

UPDATE: The 65uino is now available as a kit with SMD parts presoldered from my own store, iMania.dk

65uino-related videos

If you’re new to the 65uino, you might want to check out the videos below as explain how the 65uino came to be, and how it works, step by step.

First, it started out on a breadboard…

Then it shrunk and learned to do I2C…

Then it got a screen…

…and a bootloader…

Learned to control a Raspberry Pi…

Got a graphics upgrade…

Figured out all kinds of serial flow control…

Got given away for free…

And is currently studying to become a ROM programmer…

  1. Hello, is this board available as a kit?
    Even the PCB with mounted SMD components would be ok
    Thanks

    1. If there’s enough interest I might make it available in a few different kits, like PCB only, SMD components mounted only, with/without 6507/6532 etc.
      For now you’re very welcome to make your own for non-commercial purposes – instructions are on the hackaday.io page.
