Description

This is the full kit to build a Tynemouth Software Minstrel Issue 2 computer, you just need to supply a case and a keyboard.

The Minstrel 2 is a Z80 based 8 bit computer which is a clone of the original ZX80. It sticks to the original design, the only changes being 16K of RAM and a composite video output with a backporch signal that was missing on the ZX80 and early ZX81s. It can run the original ZX80 4K BASIC or the later upgrade 8K BASIC.

Note it follows the ZX80 design, so although it can run ZX81 software with the 8K BASIC, it lacks the fast/slow mode of the ZX81 so cannot run any ZX81 software which requires this (including most games). If you want full ZX81 compatibility, see the Minstrel 3.

The PCB is the same form factor as the ZX81, so can fit in an original ZX81 case and use the original (or a modern replacement) membrane. (note the video out connector is in a different place on the TS1000, so those cases are not suitable withtout modification) You can also built it as a standalone computer with a membrane stuck to a perspex baseplate or with the Minstrel tactile switch keyboard (see other listings).

This auction is for the full kit of parts. This kit includes the PCB, IC pack, component pack and printed instructions. 

Photo gallery shows various example keyboards and cases - not included.

This is the updated V2.9 PCB with improved video circuitry, in green. This version can be fitted with either a 7805 switching regulator or a 7805 + heatsink (switching regulator and 7805 included, but no heatsink). See photos for examples, but note some of the pictures show older versions.

See other listings for PCB only and a built and tested version.

    Répondre No, only the Z80 and RAM chip are the same, all other ICs are different. You want the MInstrel 3 kit here - https://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/details/63947
