Gigatron schematics error?

Post by maca134 » 22 Jul 2019, 15:41

Hey, first post, so id like to say hello!

Been mess around recently with DIY cpu's etc and came across the Gigatron and decided to give it a shot building it in Logisim.

After look the schematics here: ... matics.pdf, I started on making the ALU (as the multiplex approach is pretty interesting).

It looks like the pins on the top 4 bits (U17-U20) look like they may be abit backwards. After building the thing in logisim, things did not make sense with the top 4 bits (bottom 4 bits worked fine). ... b7a928.png

I could be completely wrong, im a programmer and not an electronic pro.

It makes sense on the PCB. I wouldn't follow the same layout in Logisim :-)
