ZEDDYNET

Post by Paul » Wed Nov 04, 2015 10:08 pm

THe German ZX-Team is making a fourth batch of PCBs of Network Cards for the ZX81. Is anybody interested in buying one?
Be aware that there is the need for RAM in the 8-40k area at least (e.g. ZXPand). The more the better.
There are an email client, text only browser, chat program, print to ascii file on a server and a tnfs client program for the ZX81 available for several years now.
It has been successful tested on ZX81 with ZXPand, ZX2000, ZX96, ZX81NU and ZXMore/ZXCore.
Kind regards
Paul

This is how it looked in version three last year:

The new version will be double sided with printing of the components.
In the photo there is a VG64 installed for ZX96 Bus. This is a superset of the ZX81 Bus and a normal Zeddy connector can be used instead.
Next to the wiznet there is a GAL and a Busdriver and 3.3V power supply for the wiznet.

I'd like to get it for my TS1000 or TS1500. Will the Zeddynet be ready soon? :-)

Hello dessony.
The PCBs have just been ordered in China and we expect them to arrive around Christmas.
Are you aware that we are talking about a PCB, not a ready built item?
And that RAM in the the area 8-40K is neccessary?
Kind regards
Paul

Hi Andy, I have put you on my list.
GAL source, jed and programmed Gal are all available. Just tell me what you prefer.
Also all programmes are available as P file orC-Source for z88dk.
