ZX81 ULA

Post by Andy Rea » Wed Jun 27, 2018 11:12 pm

as some of you may be aware i have developed and built another ZX81 ULA based this time around Xilinx CPLD.
Image

Designed to give composite video output will drive 75ohm or hi-z inputs
( can be made to drive the UM1233 modulator :roll: with an extra 1K resistor )

On board crystal oscillator for improved frequency control.

Pre amp to assist in tape loading, works excellent with OTLA https://code.google.com/archive/p/otla/downloads

M1not can be enabled easily.

anyway... words are not my thing... simple guide here.

P.s more will be listed soon, so dont worry if you dont get one this time.

Thanks Andy 8-)

I grabbed the last one in that batch about half an hour before midnight, so yes they did sell fast...

I was most surprised by the first buyer... The link had not even been posted here at that point.... However it was late so I went to bed. When I woke this morning it's time for work so I will be packing today and posting tomorrow. Hope this is acceptable.

I was just looking for a replacement and it went by too fast. They are not overly expensive also!

We haven’t got a replacement ULA for years, so you came at the right time. Wait a week and there will be more.

Fitted-running-working.

A nice piece of work Andy that takes care of the only worrisome bit of the zeddy, the ULA.

Z80's, caps, resistors and even a quick flash job for the ROM no worries but this bloody thing was always at the back of my mind insomuch as when my last ULA's hit the dirt what then? Hopefully now problem solved. :D

Great work as always Andy many thanks for this.


Moggy.
