RIP Chuck Peddle
« on: December 21, 2019, 17:23:27 PM »

I just learned that Chuck Peddle, one of the team of eight Motorola employees and engineers who worked on the 6800 microprocessor has died.  Many of the retro consoles we use have a processor in this family.  You can read more about him here:  The story of the team ​behind the chip that launched a revolution.

Going to the final frontier, gaming...
