PLA20V8: The Commodore 64 PLA that you can build yourself

The Commodore 64 is a computer that refuses to die and decades after its introduction, its community is still going strong. Many computers still work fine, in contrast to generations of computers that came after it, and died too soon, Commodore 64 hardware is often in good shape. But that doesn’t mean that these computers never fail, and repairing them is a common activity in the community. If you work with Commodore 64 hardware, you will know that a broken PLA is one of the most common defects. Especially PLAs that were produced in the years 1983 and 1984.
