Commodore CBM 3016 - Overview
The CBM 3016, or PET 2001-16N was a rebranding of the PET machines for Europe. Philips already sold a machine labeled PET, so Commodore was forced to rebrand the PET machines to something else, and chose CBM, Commodore Business Machine. The CBM 3016 is the same machine as the CBM 3008, but now with 16KByte of memory
The CBM 3000 series uses the same board as the 4000 PET series, but caries BASIC 2.0, which is the identical version found in the VIC-20 and the C64.
MOS 6502 CPU
The 6502 is an 8-bit MicroProcessor designed by MOS Technology. The team was led by Chuck Peddle and had also worked on the Motorola 6800. The 6502 is a simplified, but faster and cheaper design than the 6800.
The 6502 was introduced in 1975 and was the cheapest microprocessor on the market. Together with the Zilog Z80, the 6502 helped start the home computer revolution of the 1980s. The 6502 was used in a wide range of devices: the Atari 2600, the 8-bit Atari home computers, the Apple II, the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Commodore 64, the BBC Micro and many others. All used the 6502 or a variation of it.
The 6502 is a 1MHz design, while the 6502A is designed for 2MHz. The 6502A is 100% compatible with the original 6502.
Commodore soon bought MOS Technology, but conitnued to sell the microprocessor to competitors and licensed the design to other manufacturers.Source: WikiPedia - MOS Technology 6502
