I disagree very much with the author's advice to use the MC6809 rather than
the MC6809E. With the E version you have to supply a quadrature clock, but
all that's required to generate that is a single-phase 4x clock (which you
need with either the E or non-E part) and a single 74HCT74. If you feed
your single-phase 4x clock into multiple 6809 (non-E) parts, their E clock
phases won't match, but will be off by arbitrary multiples of 1/4 cycle,
which makes the shared memory design unnecessarily difficult.
