The Gigatron computer is constructed completely with TTL Logic - no microprocessor chip! There are no complicated mystery chips, just 7400 series ICs, a memory chip, and a program ROM, along assorted diodes and capacitors and resistors.
Although there is no discrete CPU chip, the TTL logic forms a powerful 8 bit computer that you can use to play games, run applications, and even create your own software.
The Gigatron kit includes all the necessary components to build your very own Gigatron computer. Participate in a unique experience as you assemble your own machine, and learn about the concepts and inner workings of a computer system. All kit components are through-hole versions, making assembly less challenging. The needed tools are a soldering iron, solder, a multi-meter and some patience. The online documentation even includes a basic soldering tutorial.
The base system includes audio out, a VGA monitor connector and combo gameport/IO expansion port. Connecting the "Pluggy McPlugface Reloaded" adapter adds a PS/2 keyboard connector and Micro SDCard slot to store your programs and data.
The Gigatron was designed by Marcel van Kervinck and Walter Belgers, and has a dedicated support forum and Discord server hosting many creative developers and enthusiasts. The Gigatron Website has a vast collection of documentation, videos, design documents, and other useful information.
