I did some 6809 work in my 3rd year engineering projects. I decided I liked the processor so much I went out and bought some computers based on them. Get a Tandy Radio Shack Color Computer, or a CoCo 2 or even a CoCo 3. They're great for playing around with the 6809, and you also get to experiment with the 6847 VDG and 6882 SAM. The CoCo 3 has to be the best 128K version of any of the home computers out there. Richard - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
