Friday, July 20, 2018: 3:00 pm (Ritchie): Growing up on the Commodore Amiga introduced Keith to the venerable Motorola 68000 processor. This talk will share the technical details of how he integrated an open-source 68K soft-core processor on a $30 FPGA board: what challenges he faced, skills he needed to learn, and how he managed to create his own retrocomputer - complete with 7" touchscreen and old-school audio - from scratch. This talk will touch on topics like computer architecture and design, Verilog HDL, 68K assembly language, electronics, and more!
