Jump to navigationJump to search

Clock generation is handled with crystal oscillators. Regardless of the size (DIP-8 or DIP-14) the pinout is the same.

NC 1 4 VCC
GND 2 3 Clock

CPU Clock

The main CPU in NerdConsole operates at 6.00 MHz.

Audio Clock

The audio system in NerdConsole operates at 3.58 MHz. There is an independent clock crystal for this instead of doing clock division of the main CPU clock which would be less accurate and difficult.

This is one of the Integrated Circuit Chips in NerdConsole.
