Event Details

Vince Briel of Replica-1, Micro-KIM, and PockeTerm fame, will be in town to lead a kit build session at NYC Resistor.  You can build one of these three kits:

  • PockeTerm - a VT100-compatible terminal board using the Parallax Propeller chip along with a PS/2-compatible keyboard and a VGA monitor.
  • replica 1 - a recreation of Steve Wozniak's original Apple I computer using many of the original chips, plus modern connectors for hooking up to monitors and keyboards.
  • Micro-KIM - the original development board for the 6502 CPU, includes on-board keypad and LED display

Vince will also teach a short introduction to working with the Parallax Propeller microcontroller chip that's used on both PockeTerm and replica 1.  The unique architecture of the Propeller with its eight CPU cores makes it great for projects involving video display and processing of multiple signals.

The price of the class does not include the cost of the kits.  You will need to order the kits separately on the Briel Computers website before the class or contact Vince to reserve a kit.
