I made a first prototype with a STM32F411 that I had in stock, and it happened to work fairly well
The RTC chip was a Motorola MC146818. And the plastic was easy to cut, thus I simply removed the old

Not a lot of I/Os are left and available on my Z80/PSoC module, but with some tricks, I was able
Since March 13th, the website was down, due to some network configuration changes. I have restored it this morning. JJ
Took 10 minutes today to post a Youtube video of the board, running Grant Searle’s ROM, RC2014 ROMs, S100 CPM3
It is sometimes disturbing to have such a clock running during the night because of its noise… My solution :

The v4 PCB is not tested/soldered yet, but I have added preliminary support for the MBC2 binaries from the SD
New PCB arrived (corrections+added LED), not tried to solder components yet (I don’t have spare parts…)
Not finished and not error-free, but yet promising Now the z80, ram and Psoc are on the same board (~

On just one breadboard now … I removed the 32-pin flash and replaced it by an SPI-SD card breakout board. So it’s only : Z80, Ram and the Cypress 4200 module, the sdcard. A few resistors,.. It runs the Monitor/Basic...

I have started working on a Z80 board that would use only 3 parts (Z80, RAM, Glue logic+SIO). The Glue is done via a PSoC4 from a Cypress CY8CKIT-049-42xx (<5 euros…) – Currently the Flash chip is not used, and...

As almost everybody, I have ordered a few esp8266 modules. For me, the existing examples are not using enough ressources of the chip : it is a 80Mhz device, with lots of memory, so… why not trying to put some...

It took me a while to figure out what was wrong with my ProMicro… When trying to program it from Linux/Ubuntu, avrdude was not working, with the following error : avrdude: ser_open(): can't open device "/dev/ttyACM0": Device or resource busy...
No big news regarding the STC15L204 code. I have just updated the schematic, I have simplified cabling the resistors, capacitors and the ds18b20 directly on the stc board and have made some ‘live’ tests with 2 sensors at home (one...
