Zeta 2 single board computer

Posted on Tuesday, December 13th, 2016 in builds by DP


Scott Baker has a nice write-up on building a Zeta v2 single board computer designed by Sergey Kiselev:

A few of the features of the Zeta 2:

  • 512K Flash Memory, allows CP/M to be booted from Flash, and mounts Flash as a CP/M disk including many tools (assembler, editor, …)
  • 512K Flash ROM, can be used as RAM Disk. Supports battery backup.
  • 16550 UART provides a single serial port
  • 8255 PIO supports up to three 8-bit serial ports
  • Dallas 1210 Real-Time Clock
  • WD37C65 floppy controller, easily supports 3.5″ PC Floppy Drives

Project info at Scott Baker’s blog.
