RC2014 is a simple 8 bit Z80 based modular computer. It is inspired by the home built computers of the late 70s and computer revolution of the early 80s. It is not a clone of anything specific, but there are suggestions of the ZX81, UK101, S100, Superboard II and Apple I in here. It nominally has 8K ROM, 32K RAM, runs at 7.3728MHz and communicates over serial at 115,200 baud.
As a bare minimum, you will need a CPU, ROM, RAM, Clock and Input/Output module. The RC2014 is designed in such a way that you can build your own modules to expand it. As such, if you have access to similar components, or have specific needs, you might not need all the items I have on offer.
This module is a single bare PCB with header pins. It features the freedom of dot-board with the convenience of strip-board to allow you to build your own RC2014 modules. The 39 x 19 matrix of pads (716 in total)features some pre-connected pins as indicated by the silkscreen. This makes it easy to connect to all the signals on the backplane and add either narrow or wide bodied ICs along the center.
