Re: Which Elf-like to build?
- Hi poe,
So what design are you going to build? Your own, the ELF2000 or the
(CO)mplementary (S)ilicon (M)et(A)l oxide (C)onductor

Not sure yet. The elf2000 seems to be a very "modern" machine and something that I'd
probably spend alot of time with. The original is fun in the sense that it envokes nostalgic
feelings even though I was born in '81 ;) I don't have access to an EEPROM-programmer so
ordering ELF2000 pcb + a rom is tempting. I have located alot of different schematics on
the net for different ELVES - no PCB do. My dad is really enthuastic about the project and
says that he will help me(he's a electronics guy with his own scope, good soldering
equipment, UV PCB etcher etc) but he says I should locate a PCB first so that we can use
that insted of soldering wires all over the place.
Anyone know of any free PCB images?
So to answer your question Tony I am thinking of building something closer to the ELF II
since it has a hex keyboard. I know many opcodes in hex for the 1802 but I have a hard
time toggling it in using binary switches.
