The MyCPU project was completely unknown to me until the end of my first year at vocational training. I got hands on a LOT of transistors (1652 BC546 to be exact) and thought to myself “why not build a small calculator with it…”

Since I built a few CPUs and calculators in Minecraft already, the idea was not that far fetched. I just love to explore the beginnings of electronics.

After a few promising tests on breadboards I stumbled across the MyCPU from Dennis Kuschel. I found the idea great and immediately started planning.

And so the build began…
