The Loomcom 6502 Homebrew Computer

Last Updated: 21 November, 2008

Thanks to a burgeoning interest in electronics, I’ve become very interested in designing and building my own computer. I chose the 6502 out of familiarity and nostalgia. It was at the heart of my two favorite computers, the Commodore 64 (in a slightly modified version called the 6510) and the Apple ][. It’s a favorite of hobbyists, and there’s a ton of software targeted to it. Plus, it’s just very easy to design around.
