Danilo,

First, you don’t need to post 3 times to get an answer. I guess your browser refresh button triple posted.

My suggestion is that you look at simply getting a raspberry Pi and run an emulator for now. When you get money you can decide on your next step of building a replica or work alike.

Cheers,
Corey

If you are asking about a Raspberry pi, then the softwares is on SD card. If you are looking to build a replica-1 like system, then you need an eeprom programmer, you can get one cheaply off of eBay from China. If you are looking to build a Mimeo or Newton-1 you will need a DataIO 29B with UniPack 2B (This will cost a lot of money for a working one which I why I sell preprogrammed PROMs along with the Mimeo PCBs)

I hope that answers you questions...

Cheers,
Corey
