I may do that, but I have to get rid of some crutches first. For example, the memory map is not final yet. Anyone trying to follow an article where I throw in new parts at every step and then replace them by something else two steps later would be totally confusing. Once I got rid of all these stepping stones, an article would make much more sense.

For example, I now use a simple power-on reset and an EEPROM at memory address 0000 to start the Zwölf. Nice and well, that sure works. For several reasons, I want to get rid of the EEPROM, but as it is now, the Zwölf would only find empty RAM after a reset. I need a way to load a program into RAM before the processor starts running. A PIC microcontroller is going to that. It's going to control the processor's clock and operating modes, load a bootloader into the RAM via DMA. That opens up many new possibilities. The Zwölf's clock frequency becomes programmable. Even single stepping by bus cycles or instructions becomes possible. I can support the old Elf's features, which require a very precise clock frequency. The PIC could even synchronize up to 8 CPUs on the same bus, so that they share the memory and I/O devices without getting into each other's way.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
