Meet the People Who Invented the Future
Below are members of the original 6502 design and production team, as well as others who worked on the chip or at MOS Technology between 1974-1976 when the 6502 and related products, such as the KIM-1, were created. Each of these individuals or their surviving family members were invited to share their resumes, memoirs of their time at MOS Technology, artifacts in their possession relating to the company and the creation of the microchip such as memos, photos, patent documents awarded to resulting innovation, and any other information they felt might be of interest to 6502 enthusiasts.
Other MOS Technology Employees
Great effort was made to locate MOS Technology employees who worked on the 6502 microprocessor to ask for their participation in making of this website. Not all of these efforts were successful. In addition to Mike Janes--one of the individuals pictured in the photograph of the 6502 team printed in the August 1975 issue of Electronic Engineering Times announcing the introduction of the 6502--other engineers and employees who could not be located but whose names appear in archival documents include Rich Indiveri, Steve Sherman, Aldo Mecchi, Ernie Helfrich, Mort Jaffe, and Don McLaughlin. These individuals or their surviving family members are encouraged to contact team6502.org should they wish to share information about themselves, their family members who worked at MOS Technology, or any memories or historical documents relating to the production of the 6502 or the history of MOS Technology they would like to make public on this website.
