David Cramer - Western Design Center

 

David Cramer is the VP of Business Development at Western Design Center, the company that still, today, manufacturers and sells the 6502 chip, the CPU that's at the heart of the Atari 800, Apple ][, Commodore 64, and many other classic computers. In fact, the 6502 is used in many modern applications like pacemakers, and it's also available in development kits for hobbyists, as David explains.

You asked David Cramer about the differences between the original 6502 and the current-production CMOS ones, and he didn't really answer the question. I try to summarize them at http://wilsonminesco.com/NMOS-CMOSdif/ .
