ROM cartridge

Post by mrtinb » Sat Nov 10, 2018 8:55 pm

Timex Sinclair released TS1510 expansion for TS1500, TS1000 and ZX81, to use ROM cartridges.

The Chrome interface has a cartridge port as well. This is compatible with the Spectrum ZX Interface 2.

Does anyone know if these cartridge interfaces are compatible?

The two different cartridges are completely incompatible. They have a different number of contacts. And the contacts are wired differently.

I see one major difference:
  • TS1510 is with area 8k - 16k
  • Chroma is with area 0k - 16k
