MOS 6502 Microprocessor - The Hobbyist's Microprocessor - Atari, Apple
About this Artwork
This artwork is a mixed media display celebrating the MOS 6502. The 6502 processor introduced in 1975, was MOS’ first successful product. Although influenced by the design philosophy of the Motorola 6800, the 6502 is clearly a different and more advanced chip design.
This artwork includes three major elements. It has a large image of a MOS 6502 chip. On the back is a narrative describing the artwork and the 6502, and the artist’s signature. Also, included is a MOS 6502 chip in a black poly resin 40 lead DIP (Dual Inline Package) package. The fully functional chip is mounted with threads and is surrounded by an enlarged diagram of the chip with the electrical signal designations for each of its leads.
The artwork is framed in an 11"x14" black shadow box frame, with glass. All framing materials are acid-free. A narrative about the artwork that includes the artist’s signature is placed on the back of the artwork.
Please note: The look of the artifacts in the artworks may vary, each piece is unique.
