Commander X16 – The Prototype is Working!

Hello Everyone! Have you been wondering what we’ve been up to all year? We planed to develop and release new products but it seems fate had other plans. Many of you may know that we’ve been working with The 8-Bit Guy on various aspects of the Commander X16 project. As time progressed, we were tasked with developing the motherboard itself! It’s been several long months of reading data sheets, forums, and routing in KiCad; but the prototype machine is complete, and it works! David just completed the second video for his “Dream Computer” series and it explains the system with great detail. Thanks to David and the whole Commander X16 team for making this all possible, it’s really amazing to be part of this project!

(Just as a little inside for my followers, we do have it working @ 8Mhz now, it just didn’t make the cut.)

  1. I am an 8-Bit Guy patron and I watched this video right away. I’ve been playing around with the emulator and I’m excited about getting a real Commander X16! You guys are doing a great job.

  2. Amazing work! 😀 😀 😀

    I love your YM2151 board, it looks so simply and elegant 🙂

    I hope that it will be the final sound chip (with a pair of PCM DACs for samples in stereo). and of course, that you put more information about that lovely sound chip card, because i think that a lot of 8 bit computers could use it.
