Welcome to the CHC61 Competition site: Jonathan A. Titus, Microcomputer Pioneer. This site is about Jonathan A. Titus and
his contributions to computing with the Mark-8 microcomputer.
Jon Titus This section is about Jonathan A. Titus. It includes information about his accomplishments
and our own interview with Dr. Titus.
Mark-8 This section is about Jonathan A. Titus's Mark-8 Microcomputer. It contains information about
Mark-8 construction, schematics, circuit boards, and other pertinent details.
Lessons This section constitutes the educational value of the website. In three tracks, 12 lessons
each, it outlines (1) the Mark-8 design, (2) computer organization study, based on Dr. Titus’ writings, and (3) a microcontroller project (documented in a video), all
presenting sequentially organized information how microcomputers are designed. It shows what we have learned from the project, offers the
student or other viewer an opportunity to learn Computer Design in twelve steps based on a specific processor, and is extendible once someone
wants to add a description of another microcomputer in 12 steps following the same format.
Timeline This section shows graphically the progress of accomplishments related to microprocessors and microcomputers, from the early 1940s to this day.
Links In this section, we have gathered references to other sources about the Mark-8 design and various other early microcomputers.
About This section is about the project objectives, the team who worked on it, and the steps we took to develop this site.
