Build your own homebrew Z80 CP/M single board computer

Hi!  If you are interested in building your own homebrew Z80 CP/M
single board computer please contact me.  I have many PCBs available
for the N8VEM SBC and all the peripherals.  You build the computer
yourself using the PCBs you either make them yourself or you can buy
the ECB Eurocard PCBs for $20 each plus shipping.

There are several PCBs available:

SBC (Z80 CPU, 512K SRAM, 1MB ROM, serial port, parallel port, RTC, and
ECB bus interface)
ECB backplane (6 slots)
ECB bus monitor (with bus status, address trapping, and single step
modes)
ECB prototyping board (with IO decoding circuitry)
DiskIO (floppy and IDE interfaces)
Zilog Peripherals (CTC timer, DART dual serial, dual PIO with 4 eight
bit parallel ports)
VDU (video interface with PS/2 keyboard, PS/2 mouse, and parallel
printer port)
6809 host processor (128K SRAM, 2K ROM, expansion bus)

I just received the PCB for the 6809 IO mezzanine board (ACIA serial,
PTM timer, dual VIA parallel ports and timers, and expansion bus).  An
N8VEM builder has ported CUBIX to the 6809 host processor and we are
working to get the 6809 IO mezzanine supported.

Builders can boot from floppy disks, IDE, ATAPI, and/or ROM images.
Some use CF adapters.  The system can use the serial IO terminal or
the VDU for self contained booting.  Interfaces with the DSKY board
(available from a different builder other than me) for "front panel"
like interface to the monitor.

There are more PCBs in work including a PropIO (VGA, PS/2 keyboard,
microSD, and prototyping area with 14 spare IO pins) that should be
available soon.  I estimate the PCBs will be available in early Feb
2010.

All the design information for the N8VEM hardware and software is
freely and publicly posted.  Please feel free to join us if you would
like to participate.

Hi!  One of the N8VEM builders just posted this photo of a completed
system.

The homebrew computer is functionally complete with all the components
you would expect of a system of the late 1970's early 1980's era.

Sadly the 3.5" drive ruins this retro-homebrew look...
But, side note, what function(s) have the two leftmost LED in every led 
row ?

Best regards from Italy,

Hi Nik!  Thanks!  There is also the DSKY panel on the top of the
computer that allows many "front panel" like functions and direct
interface to the monitor.

DSKY is very nice indeed and I use mine all the time.  It is
especially powerful when used with the ECB bus to monitor and trap
addresses for single stepping.

Thanks and have a nice day!
