This is the homepage for the home-built computers web-ring.

The Charter

The ring is open to any computer project featuring a home-built CPU. That CPU may emulate a commercial design, but it cannot be just an off-the-shelf chip.

The design must have been (at least partially) built in "real" hardware: paper designs and simulations don't cut it :-)
However, the qualifying hardware styles are extremely broad: anything from relays to TTL chips to FPGA's will qualify - will anyone contribute a vacuum-tube design? :-)

Copyrights

I often get asked for permission to reproduce data from one or more of the Ring projects. I merely maintain the ring: all intellectual property remains with the various project builders. Please contact them directly (email contacts on this page) if you want to use their content.

The Projects

Click on any of the images below, to go to that project. From there, you can navigate back and forth in the ring.
Please note the builders' email addresses have been obfuscated to foil spam harvesters. You will need to fix them up manually (ie change [at] to @).

Join the ring?

To join the Homebuilt CPUs ring, drop Warren a line, mentioning your page's URL. He'll then add it to the list.

Note: The ring is chartered for projects that include a home-built CPU. It can emulate a commercial part, that′s OK. But actually using that commercial CPU doesn′t rate. Likewise, the project must have been at least partially built: pure paper designs don′t rate either. It can be built using any technology you like, from relays to FPGAs.
