Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Or come and get involved on our social media channels ...

Understanding Microprocessors with the MK14 Date: 1980 Understanding Microprocessors with the MK14

This book approaches the subject of microprocessors and their functions through the SC/MP processor.  This was the processor included with the Science of Cambridge Mk14, the forerunner of Sinclair and Acorn's hugely successful 1980s microcomputers.

From the blurb:

'Specially written for users of the Science of Cambridge Mk 14 Microcomputer, this book provides a carefully structured introduction to Mk 14 programming in SC/MP (8060) Assembler language.  Various examples are given, including the design and writing of a games program.  An appendix gives the circuit for a 11/2K memory expansion.'

The book was written by Ian Williamson and Rodney Dale, both of whom are now trustees of the Centre for Computing History.
