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!

TMS 9900 Microprocessor - Assembly Language Programmer's Guide

From the preface:

'This manual describes the assembly language for the Model 990 Computer and the TMS 9900 microprocessor as implemented by PX9ASM, a one-pass assembler that executes under the Prototyping System PX990; by TXMIRA, a two-pass assembler that executes under TX990; by SDSMac, a two-pass assembler that executes under Disc Executive DX10; and by the Cross Assembler, a two-pass assembler that is part of the Cross Support System.  Except for a few differences that are expressed in Appendix L, the TMS 9940 microcomputer uses the same assembly language as the TMS 9900 Microprocessor.  However, the assembly language for the TMS 9940 microcomputer can be implemented only by the TXMIRA and the SDSMAC assemblers.'
