Interesting Z80 project using a real Z80 but for all I/O using an MCU

Very nice project, the Mini80. A real Z80 CPU is used (this is important for speed and compatibility), but all I/O is done by a Parallax Propeller chip.

Very small footprint, simple logic board design ... what else (except a build in VGA interface) do you want ?
This is a picture from the prototype board:


And this is the related CP/M boot screen:

It can run CP/M 2.2, using disk images from a larger "pack" file.
Hopefully his transfer utilities (for single files) will be implemented soon.

Just take a look at the Micro Vibe Site and that Mini80 article
http://www.shaels.net/index.php/mini80/ ... o-overview
for an introduction.


I recommend visiting his site (see also "related link") !
