MatchBox BASIC computer - 1:
The miniature size computer described in this short series of articles heralds a new era in DIY microcontroller development systems. The MatchBox computer (MBC) is cheap, simple to program in a BASIC dialect, and uses an EEPROM for nonvolatile program storage. Programs for the MBC may be written, edited, debugged and downloaded with the aid of an MS-DOS PC, using the serial RS232 port. To support the hardware, a variety of programming examples 'from the ground up' and system utilities are available on a floppy disk.
