Retro-uC

An open silicon microcontroller with a Z80, MOS6502, and M68K - start the open silicon revolution

This project is coming soon. Sign up to receive updates and be notified when this project launches.


The Retro-uC pilot run will produce an open source silicon ASIC that contains the RTL for some retro CPUs - the Zilog Z80, MOS 6502 and Motorola M68K. The IC will be on a board that has Arduino-compatible I/O for use in all your cool projects. But beyond the product itself, the intent is to put together an open source EDA flow and manufacturing supply chain that will make creating open silicon an easier process for any who care to get involved.
