This is the conversion kit for users who have purchased the ZXpand Interface for use with their Sinclair ZX81 home computer, and may wish to use it with a Sinclair ZX80 computer.


If you use the ZXpand with the ZX80, you will need to swap one of the GAL chips on the interface and solder a small jumper to the interface.  This is quite a simple task and easily accomplished if you have previously handled a soldering iron.

The ZXpand will still work with the ZX81 (simply remove the jumper from the two pins).

However, it means that you will now be able to use the ZXpand with a ZX80 also !

The ZX80 uses the ZXpand for loading and saving, plus 32K RAM.  Three new keywords are added to the ZX80 ROM (CAT, CONFIG and DELETE), so that means, you will need to open your ZX80 and swap the existing ROM for the new Flash EPROM chip provided.

The package therefore consists of the following:

  • Replacement GAL for your ZXpand interface
  • Jumper ready for soldering on your ZXpand interface
  • Replacement Flash EPROM programmed with the enhanced ZX80 ROM (with the new keywords CAT, CONFIG and DELETE on the Z, L and P keys respectively).  Simply remove the existing ROM on your ZX80 (keep the ROM as this is very rare!)
  • ZXtend expansion cable (this goes between the ZX80 and the ZXpand interface, so that you can still get to the TV out socket).

A Short video of the ZXpand interface in action (on the ZX81) appears at:


  1. ZX80 computers with internal RAM upgrades may not be compatible. Contact us for advice.
  2. ZX80 computers with the internal regulator bypassed will not work without a small mod to ZXpand.
