Computer From Scratch

Posted on July 19, 2015 by Collin J. Doering

Recently I have had the pleasure of completing the course Nand to Tetris on Coursea. Firstly, I'd like to highly recommend it to anyone! I never thought it would be possible for me to understand computers all the way down to the hardware level (past assembly that is); Nand to Tetris has shown me otherwise! It has also inspired me to pursue learning a real world hardware description language and attempt to implement the Hack system on an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array). In this article I will describe how the process is coming and the what remains to be completed.

For the impatient, the repository is located here and is documented here.
