The MOS Technology 6510 is a microprocessor designed by MOS Technology, Inc., and is a direct successor of the very successful 6502. Large version of the illustration used at the MOS Technology page. ... Large version of the illustration used at the MOS Technology page. ... The Commodore 64 is the best-selling single personal computer model of all time. ... ICs in DIP14-Package Several PDIPs and CERDIPS. The large CERDIP in the foreground is an 8080 processor. ... MOS Technology SIDs: The right image shows a 6581 from MOS Technology, at the time they were known as the Commodore Semiconductor Group (CSG) and the left image shows an 8580 from MOS Technology. ... A microprocessor is a programmable digital electronic component that incorporates the functions of a central processing unit (CPU) on a single semiconducting integrated circuit (IC). ... MOS Technology, Inc. ... The MOS Technology 6502 is an 8-bit microprocessor that was designed by Chuck Peddle for MOS Technology in 1975. ...


The primary change from the 6502 was the addition of an 8-bit general purpose I/O port (only six I/O pins were available in the most common version of the 6510). In addition, the address bus could be made tristate. Energy Input: The energy placed into a reaction. ... In electronics a three-state, tri-state or 3-state digital logic gate is one in which the output circuit can be disconnected from the rest of the circuit, putting the output in a high impedance state. ...


The 6510 was only widely used in the Commodore 64 home computer (and in significantly smaller numbers in the C64's portable version, the SX-64). In both the C64 and SX-64 the extra pins of the processor were used to control the computer's memory map, and in the C64 also for controlling the electric motor of the Datassette tape recorder. It was possible, by writing the correct bit pattern to the processor at address $01, to completely expose the full 64K of RAM in the C64, leaving no ROM or I/O hardware exposed. The Commodore 64 is the best-selling single personal computer model of all time. ... Children playing on a Amstrad CPC 464 in the 1980s. ... A Portable computer is a computer that is designed to be moved from one place to another (in other words, it is a computer that is portable). ... Commodore SX-64 The Commodore SX-64, also known as the Executive 64, was a portable, briefcase/suitcase-size luggable version of the popular Commodore 64 home computer and holds the distinction of being the first full-color portable computer. ... Memory-mapped I/O (MMIO) and port I/O (also called port-mapped I/O or PMIO) are two complementary methods of performing input/output between the CPU and I/O devices in a computer. ... Rotating magnetic field as a sum of magnetic vectors from 3 phase coils An electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. ... The Commodore 1530* (C2N) Datassette (a portmanteau of data + cassette), was Commodores dedicated computer tape recorder. ... Bit pattern is the pattern of bitwise operations. ... Look up RAM, Ram, ram in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... Close_up of C64 Commodore 64 (C64, CBM 64) was a popular home computer of the 1980s. ... Read-only memory (usually known by its acronym, ROM) is a class of storage media used in computers and other electronic devices. ... This article is about the computer interface. ...


Variants

In 1985 MOS produced the 8500, an HMOS version of the 6510. Other than the process change, it is virtually identical to the NMOS version of the 6510. The 8500 was originally designed for use in the modernised C64, the C64C. However in 1985, limited quantities of 8500s were found on older NMOS based C64s. It finally made its official debut in 1987, appearing in a motherboard using the new 85xx HMOS chipset. Year 1985 (MCMLXXXV) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link displays 1985 Gregorian calendar). ... HMOS, high-performance n-channel MOS, uses n-type metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs) to implement logic gates and other digital circuits. ... NMOS logic uses n-type metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs) to implement logic gates and other digital circuits. ... Year 1987 (MCMLXXXVII) was a common year starting on Thursday (link displays 1987 Gregorian calendar). ...

Pin configuration of the most common variation of the 6510 CPU

The 7501/8501 variant of the 6510 was used in Commodore's C16, C116 and Plus/4 home computers, and the 2 MHz-capable 8502 variant was used in the Commodore C128. All these CPUs are opcode compatible (including undocumented opcodes), except the 8502, where some differences concerning the undocumented opcodes have been reported.

The MOS Technology 8502 was MOSs microprocessor used as one of the two¹ CPUs in the Commodore 128 home/personal computer. ... Microprocessors perform operations using binary bits (on/off/1or0). ... An Illegal Opcode, also called an Undocumented Instruction, is an instruction to a CPU that is not mentioned in any official documentation released by the CPUs designer or manufacturer, which nevertheless has an effect. ...


The Commodore 1551 disk drive used the 6510T, a version of the 6510 with eight I/O lines. The NMI and RDY signals are not available. The Commodore 1551 was a floppy disk drive for the Commodore Plus/4 home computer. ... A Non-Maskable Interrupt (NMI) is a special type of interrupt that can not be ignored by standard interrupt masking techniques. ...
