The C-One single-board microcomputer designed by Jeri Ellsworth, a self-taught designer, was initially created in 2002 as an enhanced Commodore 64 home computer, but has been reengineered to allow cloning of other 8-bit computers.
The machine uses FPGA chips to recreate the hardware including the 65C816 CPU of old home computers—and so is not merely an emulator. C-One uses core files loaded from disk to configure the hardware. In 2004 the platform was expanded to include an Amstrad CPC core made by Tobias Gubener . So far, C-One circuit boards have been produced by German company Individual Computers, and they currently sell for €269.
