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 maintenance kit

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
This refurbishment kit is not for all board revisions for the Opus Discovery!
CHECK IF YOU NEED THESE PARTS OR NOT!

It is often NOT EASY to replace these parts in an Opus Discovery!
More info can be found in this Opus Discovery Maintenance Manual (click).

This offer is for a set of brand new replacement parts for the Opus Discovery floppy disk system:
– 2x Vishay VS-2KBB20 bridge rectifiers
– 2x 4700uF Radial capacitors
– 2x 1uF Radial capacitors
– 2x 10uF Radial capacitors
– Printed Opus Discovery Maintenance Manual (click)

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, and also the old original electrolytic capacitors.

The kit comes with a printed copy of the latest version of the Opus Discovery Maintenance Manual (click).

ZX-HD HDMI interface + Rasperry Pi Zero – complete set

 

29 Sep 2022:

If ‘Available on backorder’, it means we ran out of
either HDMI cables or cases.
These will then be available in a couple of days.

RASPBERRY PI ZERO 2 NOT YET SUPPORTED

The Raspberry Pi Zero 2 is NOT yet supported!
The ZX-HD requires a Raspberry Pi Zero or Raspberry Pi Zero W
(with or without pre-soldered pin header)

RASPBERRY PI ZERO STOCK LEVELS

Please know that we are very limited in Raspbery Pi Zero stock!
RaspberryPi.org cannot supply us these directly at this moment,
because of worldwide parts shortage.
A couple of retailers have stock, but we are not allowed to buy bulk from them.
From what I read, more Rapberry Pi Zero will be available in Q2 2022.

Dual Floppy Drive set

5 disks filled with PlusDlite utilities + 5 empty disks

Add the fun of using floppies on a ZX Spectrum, for a truly nostalgic experience!

The PlusDlite Floppy Disk Interface

The PlusDlite is based on the succesful MGT PlusD floppydisc interface.
The PlusD and it’s big brother – the Disciple floppydisc interface – were the best floppydisc interface available back then.
They were fast, had a really easy to use BASIC syntax, and were compatible with the most advanced floppydrives at the time: up to 80 track DS DD drives, with a maximum capacity of 800KB.
The PlusD also had snapshot functionality integrated, and came in a decent metal case.

The PlusDlite has:

  • An integrated Kempston joystick port
  • RESET button
  • NMI (snapshot) button!

Read the PlusDlite manual online here!
More information can be found at the dedicated PlusDlite website; click here!

Read the Dual Floppy Drive Set manual here.

The Dual Floppy Drive set

  • Manually crafted!
  • Also works on e.g. PlusD, Disciple, Betadisk, QL and other machines with Shugart Flopp Disk interface like BBC etc.
  • Including EU / UK / US power supply (the type that is needed in your country is included)

The set

The set comes with 5 Double Density Floppy discs with PlusD utilities, and 5 empty formatted DD disks.
