Following the popularity of the AgonLight2, a lot of users were asking "why not create a 6502-based machine?". Well, it happened and here it is - the Olimex Neo6502!

The Olimex Neo6502 is a complete 6502 retro computer that merges the classic W65C02 processor with modern innovation, featuring the RP2040 with 2MB Flash, benefits from dual-core ARM Cortex-M0+ processors, versatile I/O options and other advanced features.

The included I/O, such as HDMI for standard monitors, USB-C for power and USB-A for peripherals, allows convenient old-school development in a modern world. You can see a hands-on video of an early prototype board here!

The Neo name was chosen for two reasons. First, it implies the modern design, then we liked the analogy with the movie The Matrix as the W65C02 lives in a virtual world and thinks it has real memory, video and keyboard...but all of this is virtual and emulated by the RP2040!

Matching enclosure coming soon!

Note: Board only - no cables, power supply or accessories included.
