Description

This is the full kit to build a Tynemouth Software Minstrel Issue 3 computer, you just need to supply a case and a keyboard.

The Minstrel 3 is a Z80 base 8 bit computer which is a ZX81 / TS1000 compatible. It has 32K of RAM with high resolution graphics support, and improved composite video output where the orignal TV output would have been. 

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 build it as a standalone computer with a membrane stuck to a perspex baseplate or with the Minstrel keyboard (not included).

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.

These are the new V3.5.8 boards.
