About MicroCore Labs

Hi! My name is Ted Fried and I welcome you to my website which highlights some of my favorite projects!

Some of them have been world firsts, world's fastest.. or world's only!   :)

I have an interest in embedded designs which include microsequencer-based FPGA processor cores, high reliability computing, vintage CPU accelerators, and general embedded fun! 

Some of my FPGA-based microsequencers have been used to implement near-clones of the Intel 8086, 8051, and MOS 6502 processors whose cycle accuracy is confirmed in the their original vintage computers!

I have also written a number of software emulators including the Motorola 68000,  MOS 6502 and RISC-V processors.

I enjoy tinkering with vintage hardware, so dont be surprised to see things like controlling a circa 1985 typewriter with a 2020 microcontroller!

All of my work is open sourced and available on GitHub and I have a number of videos on YouTube.

Please reach out to me, I would love to hear from you!
