    Clickbait, smh. I get that it's coming later, but you should have added (Part 1) to the title.

    I love that you can still get oldschool CPU's like this.

    Even though many modern microcontrollers are very similar in capabilities, such as the chips that power Arduinos…

    The old designs still have their charms.

    That you can still get the Z80
    and the 6502 family (eg. 6502 and 65186) is a lot of fun…

    I'm still somewhat surprised that in all this time they never created an improved 65816 though.
    I don't mean a radical redesign.

    I just mean the biggest complaint most people have integrating a 65816 into their project, is that it multiplexes the bank byte (high byte of the 24 bit address) and data byte onto the same pins, which requires a bit of external circuitry to deal with and complicates designs using this CPU…

    So, knowing that, why, in like 30-40 years have they never made a version of the chip that has the 8 additional address lines required to avoid this complication?
