An open-source educational platform for students of computer engineering and advanced hobbyists. It gives the user direct, convenient and unrestricted access to the hardware. It aims to demystify computers by showing in detail how one is built from the gate level up. CERBERUS 2080 is an innovative, fully-functional computer. its architecture illustrates how a multi-processor system car be built. Its design was done explicitly at the gate level, with no high-level hardware synthesis tools. All custom ICs are implemented by in-system programmable CPLDs. CERBERUS 2080's architecture is clean and highly didactic, no ugly compromises having been made for cost-reduction purposes. It can be regarded as an advanced, elegant successor to the classical late-70s microcomputers such as the ZX80, TRS-80 and PET 2001.
