How to build a simple CPU from 74XX Logic Chips?
I'm wondering what are some good resources to learn how to build a simple programmable CPU from 74XX logic chips. I'd like to build one where I use DIP switches to program the CPU. I don't have an EEPROM/EPROM/PROM burner, so using those are out of the question. I've seen some CPU's already that run an internet server, but they are too complicated/expensive to build and understand. I want to learn how a CPU can be built and the principles behind it.
I have about 150 74XX chips, including a 74LS181 ALU unit. I also have enough capacitors and resistors for the project.
