Z80 Card – The Heart of a New Machine

August 15, 2015

15-08-16 Z80 Kit

Lee Hart, who makes the 1802 CPU board I use in the original Olduino has come out with a Z80-based kit in the same credit card size.  I’ve had my eye on this for a while and i finally got one.  I’m looking forward to building it and making an Olduino/Z with it.  There are already a couple of C/C++ compilers for the Z80 so the software should be easier and this board has a ROM in place from the get-go so i’m going to see if i can avoid using an AVR, the boot loader can go in the ROM.

I’ve also been corresponding with a fellow in England who’s building an AVR/Z80 hybrid “Zolduino”.  I look forward to collaborating with him on that.
