In this smalltalk we will see how to build our own CPU in Logisim. We will start with a quick overview of some fundamentals of digital logic, computer architecture and the Logisim simulator. Then we build a very simple CPU, step by step. The audience will help make some final improvements to the CPU. In general, this presentation will help the audience understand the general workings of CPUs, how different architectural decisions impact performance and cost.
