A lot of colleges and universities use some type of simple 8-bit assembly ISA to teach introduction to computer systems, but because they are 8-bit ISA's there is no hardware to actually run their programs on, programs are all run on a simulator. I thought it would be pretty cool to build a full computer based off of the LC3 ISA.
The end goal is to have a full computer with all the normal sorts of components, memory, I/O, display, which can directly be programmed using the LC3 ISA and then execute those programs. The computer will also be able to execute programs inserted through an SD Card as well as edit those programs directly.
I will post more details as time goes by and more progress is made!
