Title: Z80 Computing...
Post by: Link on January 12, 2009, 08:31:39 PM
Der Zilog Z80 (manchmal auch „Z-80“) ist ein 8-Bit-Mikroprozessor, der von der Firma Zilog Inc. entwickelt wurde. In CMOS-Technologie ist der Z80 bis heute lieferbar.
Der Z80 überflügelte rasch den 8080 und wurde die populärste 8-Bit-CPU aller Zeiten; wenn man die absolute Größe des Marktes einbezieht, dann ist er die seither erfolgreichste CPU.

The N8VEM Home Brew Computer Project
The N8VEM Single Board Computer (SBC) is a home brew Z80 small computer project. It is made in the style of vintage computers of the mid to late 1970's and early 1980's using a mix of classic and modern technologies.
The web site is a repository of information, documentation, and files pertaining to the N8VEM Home Brew Computer Project.  It is intended to be the canonical place for this information.
Low cost development and assembly by hobbyist amateurs is encouraged by using common tools such as 25 watt soldering iron, VOM, logic probe (optional), and common hand tools.  An oscilloscope is recommended but not required.  Some basic electronic skills are good but the PCBs are designed for relative beginners. For more details, see the Design Overview page.  There is a discussion forum also, see the N8VEM Google Group.

Z80 Microcomputer Project
I've always been interested in computers and electronics in general, but I felt the need to learn how computers work down to the 1's and 0's and machine language. I started surfing the internet and found a few sites that have project plans on how to build a 8-bit microcomputer from scratch. ... |

SymbOS is a multitasking operating system for Z80-based 8-bit computer systems. At present it is available for the Amstrad CPC series of computers, as well as for all MSX models starting from the MSX2 standard and for most Amstrad PCW models. ....

I started to develop SymbOS in November 2000. In Januar 2001 I stopped it. But after the great "Klassentreffen"-party (June 2001) in Erlangen/Germany I continued to code SymbOS with much new motivation. After finishing most parts of the desktop-routines I stopped, as I wasn't sure, if the memory system of the CPC really can handle such an operating system. Also it crashed sometimes without any reasons. In September 2004 I liked to continue. So I decided to work again on it. I found out, that the memory system will be manageable, and the reason for the crashes was a bug in an old emulator version, which is fixed now. ...

"SymbOS: Ein grafisches Multitasking-Betriebssystem für Z80-Plattformen"
