The ZedRipper: Part 1

Meet the ZedRipper – a 16-core, 83 MHz Z80 powerhouse as portable as it is impractical. The ZedRipper is my latest attempt to build a fun ‘project’ machine, with a couple of goals in mind:

Finally use one of the giant FPGA boards I had lying around
Play a little ‘alternate-history computer engineering’ with a hardware-focused approach to multitasking
Build a machine that I could write fun, small programs for on my daily train ride
Build a platform that would allow for relatively easy computer-architecture experiments”
