A great top quality replacement for the 7805 5V 1A voltage regulator in ZX80, ZX81, ZX Spectrum 16K and 48K.
No heat, very power efficient.
As good as the Traco Power voltage regulators.

Pin compatible with the 7805.
Has a smaller footprint than the 7805, so fits at the location of the 7805 without any problem.
Offers the same power output as the standard 7805: 1A.

No heat, so no heatsink required.
Will increase the lifetime of your computer!

Speccy Breadboard – Black

Many ZX Spectrum enthusiasts would like to be able to experiment a bit with I/O connected to their computer.
This is your opportunity of doing just that!
All signals of the ZX Spectrum edge connector are available for you to wire to your own selection of parts to put on the breadboard (400 pins).

Included in this kit are:

  • The assembled -black- Speccy Breadboard with edge connector, breadboard and female headers
  • A 65 piece breadboard-wire kit
  • A manual

On the board all signals that are available at the female pin headers, are printed in clear white text.

 

In the near future ByteDelight will offer some additional cool and fun easy project kits to interface to the ZX Spectrum, specially designed for this breadboard kit.

 

USING THIS KIT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

It’s very easy to damage the ZX Spectrum by making a mistake with the wiring.

Opus Discovery small maintenance kit (bridge rectifiers)

Available soon!

This offer is for a set of two replacement bridge rectifiers for an Opus Discovery floppy disk system.
We offer the high quality Vishay VS-2KBB20’s.

The Opus Discovery is an add-on made in 1985 for the ZX Spectrum –  read more about the Opus Discovery here.

The original bridge rectifiers assembled from factory in a Opus Discovery system, are of poor quality.
With many users their Opus Discovery failed after adding a second Floppy disk drive, because the current drawn through these Bridge Rectifiers exceeded their maximum.
Many of the original bridge rectifiers bulge, and / or have visible melted plastic.

So it’s good as preventive maintenance of your Opus Discovery, to replace these bridge rectifiers.
If they fail, of course you will have to replace them anyway.
There aren’t many suitable replacement types available, hence we sourced them and offer them here.

 

The kit comes without assembly instructions, as they are straight forward enough:
Remove the old bridge rectifiers (using e.g. a tin sucker with your soldering iron) and install the new ones, minding the angled corner at one side of the bridge rectifiers for orientation.

Two of these will be in this replacement kit:

Remove the old parts (using e.g. a tin sucker with your soldering iron) and install the new ones, minding orientation of the parts:
– the bridge rectifiers have one angled corner
– the capacitors have a ‘-‘ (negative polarity) side clearly shown on the casing
