Re: ZX81 ULA-in-a-CPLD

@siggi i wonder if it's possible to have a back plane that has a bi directional buffer for the data bus? The databus driver of ZX96 (old project) an Torsten's remake have a bidirectional databus driver (74LS245 or similar). But they need an enable signal (/BUSCS) generated by the card behind der bu...

Re: SPeccy ON the ZeddY

It works :mrgreen: I have loaded SPONZY into instance 6: Ram 16-64K, CTRL-OFF (so no USB load/save or task switching possible!), 3,25 or 6,5 Mhz. At 6,5 MHz the "Speccy" is running quite fast ;) ...
