Retro Console JavaMy Story: Retro Console Java

In 2013 Michael Kohn started writing a program he called Java Grinder that takes the byte-code from Java.class files and generates assembly language files that can be assembled for different CPUs and systems. He is always trying to find an electronics project no one would ever think of, so he dusted off a TI-99/4A computer he had lying around and tried to get the grinder to work with it. Sadly, his vision didn’t come easily.

LCD Display for Waveform GeneratorHot Club Jameco Kit: LCD Display for Waveform Generator

After assembling Jameco's waveform generator, I felt that a display of the signal would increase its functionality without having to attach an oscilloscope to read the signal. Wondering why you can't hear the signal is easier to troubleshoot if you know the signal isn't above human hearing range. This kit will offer a "rough idea" of what signal is being produced.
