OT? What 8bit Microprocessors still available new?

Interesting thread ... nice reading.
For the design of a small 6802-based system check:


and click the links "interface hardware" and "interface
monitor". The project has had little time lately, but I am
working on the mechanical part: a new sleakier front.
it has the CPU (...), 8 kbytes RAM, 8 kbytes EPROM,
and is very easy to expand with as much I/O you want.
Hey, if you are going to connect a "PDP-11" console
to it (relax chaps, a home-made one, the real consoles
stay on my machines!) you need *lots* of I and O.
All fits on a single board. I still can write a program
in hex opcodes for the 6802.

Risk of starting a flame: Motorola is way nicer to work
with in assembly language than all the Intel crap.
Words hi- and lo-byte swapped ... go figure !

gd lck with your hardware,
- Henk, PA8PDP
