Nybl - A Science Fair Microcomputer Trainer Emulator

Hey,

 

I posted this on the main forum, but it was suggested it might also be of interest here. I have put together an emulator of the Science Fair Microcomputer Trainer for the Intellivision. This is a programmable electronics kit from the mid 1980's based around the TMS-1100 4bit micro-controller.

If you fancy trying it the ROM image and some technical details can be found on this thread:

Thanks, and apologies for double posting

curious, what does nybl stand for?

Nybble (or nibble) is a computing term that refers to four bits, similar to how "byte" usually refers to eight bits. If you consider taking a nibble is half a bite, you see the analogy. In this case, it seems that "nybl" is a variant spelling of nybble, since the emulated system operates with 4-bit memory as far as I understand.

Yup, that's it. The TMS-1100 being emulated is a 4 bit processor. I quite liked the look of Nybl, similar to byte, and I thought it might have the same pronunciation as nibble. :)
