We've found some interesting things on the 6502, from the layout level, up through circuit level to the programmer visible level.

Programmer Visible

Notes here on bugs and undocumented behaviour.

See also our catalogue of 6502 test programs, useful to verify simulators or emulators.

Circuit and Logic

Notes here on timing fixes and non-digital circuit techniques, and departures from NMOS design style orthodoxy.

Layout

Notes here on the traces of bug fixes, and remnants of the original 6501 layout.
