Inspiration

A project log for Discrete YASEP

a 16-bits YASEP computer (mostly) made of DIP/SOIC chips like in the 70s and 80s... with 2010's twists!

I visited Labitat today

My host Christian was excited to show me a book-like box. And guess what ?

The MPF-1 is not a book, it's a computer. Which is more or less my intention with the Discrete YASEP...

Can you believe it's still manufactured and sold by Flite ?

I hope to add a MPF-1/88 to my collection, to remind me where the inspiration comes from and what to get "right", such as the programming interface :-)

The ability to assemble instructions without the need of manual assembly is precious. Typing hex codes is geeky but that's not an end in itself !

I have noticed that the best development tools for a computer are also the tools that helped design it. With an open sourced design, both are the same and this makes the system even better :-)
