Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --OS-9 Al

8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

Specifying the CC-Five

The purpose of this section is to serve as a collaborative framework for developing technical specifications for the next generation of Color Computer development.

  • History and Rationale - Why do such a thing?
  • Roadmap - How we might get to where we want to go today.
  • Design Criteria - Guidelines for what gets added, what stays, and what goes.
  • Standards and Procedures - What kinds of information do we expect to put in the following subsections?
  • Architectural Overview - Here's the big picture. Block diagrams of major subsystems, etc.
  • CPU / MMU - Design specifications for the processor, memory management unit, and DRAM controller, system bus, etc.
  • Video - Video display hardware.
  • Audio - Sound input and output.
  • Other I/O - Built-in I/O devices, such as serial, parallel, IDE, and memory card.
  • Software Issues - Software and firmware that may be distributed with CC-Five systems.
  • Work Allocation - Rubber, meet Road. Who's actually going to work on this stuff?
  • Wishlist - Put fanciful musings here. Please leave them out of the other subsections.
