The Legendary 65xx microprocessors keep on cranking!
Interview by the talented Nicholas Lewis of Bill Mensch of Western Design Center, Inc. ; the home of the 65xx brand CMOS microprocessors. You are invited to watch the interview on World Computer Day 2022.
Bill Mensch is an electrical engineer who was among the original team that left Motorola to develop the 6502 microprocessor at MOS Technology. In this interview, Mensch discusses his life and career—including his early life in Pennsylvania, his journey into electrical engineering, and his circuitous path to Motorola—through his role in creating the 6502. Mensch then brings the 6502 up to the present, where both he and the chip continue to change the world of personal computing.
Interview by the talented Nicholas Lewis of Liza Loop of the LO*OP Center. You are invited to watch the interview on World Computer Day 2022.
Liza Loop founded the LO*OP Center in 1975 with the mission of providing educational resources for children and adults, emphasizing computing and communication technologies. In this interview, Loop discusses how her goals as a technology educator starting in the 1970s brought the first Apple-1, which utilized the 6502 microprocessor, to the LO*OP Center. Provided by Steve Wozniak as a classroom educational tool, the Apple-1 did not work exactly as planned. Loop discusses the history of this Apple-1, its future as an historical piece, and how her work in education has evolved since the 1970s.
