    Soldering Up the rc2014 Homebrew Z80 Computer Kit

    element14 presents  |  Matt Eargle's VCP Profile |  Project Videos



    Matt normally does most of his work from the comfort of his Southern California hackerspace, but circumstances have forced him to temporarily retreat to his kitchen table. Unfortunately, that means limited resources and even more limited space to comfortably work. As such, Matt has had to put all of his larger, more bombastic projects on hold for the time being and focus on small devices he can fit in his makeshift kitchen studio. In this video, he'll look at a retro computing project that's been sitting on the back burner for too long: Spencer Owen's "RC2014" Z80 homebrew computer. In this Super Solder episode, Matt will walk through the basic design of the system, assemble its various component boards, and play around with some BASIC programs from his archive./span>
