Some things are just worth saving.
The Visual 6502 is a chip simulator, but not in the normal sense; it’s a way to truly keep this early microprocessor alive. Instead of simulating the running code, this simulator simulates the actual connections, gates, etc and has them activate just like the real chip (which, of course, means it runs the code correctly too).
And it’s very cool to watch!
This is a view of the entire chip - all 20,000 components, including an incredible 3510 transistors!.
To the right of the running chip is the code that it is executing…
but you’ll have to translate between binary and ML yourself…
The simulator has lots of options for viewing it in action - pause, step, zoom in and out, pan around during zoom, etc.
