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 listing is for a kit of parts to build the SD Memory Dump Module only. For the rest of the modules, see my other products. This kit allows the entire 64k address space to be either saved to SD card or loaded from SD card. The two primary goals of this is to be able to save memory containing BASIC programs so they can be reloaded when required, and to allow quick development of ROM images on a RAM only RC2014. Note that this is not intended as a file system to be accessed from the RC2014. It literally dumps everything in memory to a hex file, or dumps everything from a hex file in to memory. The hex files on the SD card can be edited on a PC.
Please read the full description of how this module works http://rc2014.co.uk/modules/sd-memory-dump/
Please be aware that the firmware is currently at a very early stage. The firmware can be found on the RC2014 Github page. Whilst it is functional, it still needs a lot of work. If you can help with this, please get in touch.
Important Note: This kit is designed to work with the Z80 CPU board version 1.1 or later
