Hallo allemaal, AndrÃ© wrote: > I am using free6502 as CPU core for example. I spent two hours with Gideon talking about the new 1541Ultimate-II and more important (for me), discussing VHDL. It was quite a frustrating discussion as most things didn't go the way I thought they would: my model wasn't good and the way I had programmed it wasn't good as well. The last I can understand; I only have to look at the Pascal programs I wrote when I just started programming. Regarding the model, it is in fact based on my TTl6502. And Gideon couldn't detect any flaw :) Using this model I discussed my finding that IMHO all the cores I know, including Gideon's, treated NMI as level triggered. The docs state that the NMI in the 6502 is edge triggered. He agreed with my findings. But so far it never caused problems, so why changing it? I gave him an example where things could go wrong. Anyway if the docs state edge triggered, why not implementing it? I also discussed the timing around PHI1 and PHI2 and the surprise came: it seems that the timing of the 6502 is quite difficult to realize in VHDL. But that is no problem as long it is inside a complete design like those used for the C-One. So I can indeed run in trouble wanting to emulate a real 6502. But I have my ideas to circumvent that. Anyway, errorous or not, I will keep on going my own way and see where the ship will sink. -- ___ / __|__ / / |_/ Groetjes, Ruud Baltissen \ \__|_\ \___| http://Ruud.C64.org Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2010-08-23 16:00:03
