GGLABS started lending on Kiva back in 2016 and we are proud to announce that we have just made our 400th loan for a grand total of $10,000 of loaned funds. We love to support entrepreneurs and small businesses around the world to improve their lives. During the years we have supported people from 66 different countries.
A new release of SDCC, the portable optimizing compiler for STM8, MCS-51, DS390, HC08, S08, Z80, Z180, Rabbit, SM83, eZ80 in Z80 mode, Z80N, TLCS-90, 6502, Padauk and PIC microprocessors is now available.

Recently we have been working with the SDCC team to include 6502 support in the next release of SDCC. The port is largely based on the excellent work from Steve Hugg at 8-bit workshop. The port passes all the tests in the regression suite and it will be included in the upcoming 4.2.0 release.

We are very thankful for all the support we received so far and hope to continue in 2021.

This year our staff decided to enter the retrochallenge competition. Our goal is to reverse engineer the Berkely softworks geoRAM and publish what we discover under the GPL. The geoRAM is a 512KB memory expansion for the Commodore 64 and 128. Unlike the Commodore 1750 REU, which contain a custom chip, the geoRAM is built completely out of standard TTL chips.
