How to build the circuit boards.

And now on to construction.

For the Nano Circuit board you will need the following

Veroboard (I used a piece 13 holes by 19).
32 DIL Wide Socket.
28 Male Pin Headers.
Jumper wire.

Cut the jumper pins to the following

3 x 1 Pin
2 x 2 Pins
2 x 4 Pins
1 x 6 Pins
1 x 7 pins

Make sure the copper strips on the veroboard are vertical and on the underside of the board.

 When you have soldered all the components flip the board over and remove the copper strips where indicated. Be very careful not to cut yourself.

When completed it should look something like this.












Now on to the Audio filter. You will need the following.

Veroboard (I used a piece 9 holes by 15)
4 x 4.7k resistors.
3 x 4.7nF Capacitors
1 x 100nF Capacitor
3 x Male Pin headers.

Cut your male pin header into single pins.



C1, C2, and C3 are the 4.7nF Capacitors
C4 is the 100nF Capacitor.

Now flip the board over and cut the copper as indicated.

The final assembled board should look like this (minus the wires attached to the pins).













In the next blog we will build the Button board and then assemble all the componants.

Introducing the TZXDuino

A Giant Leap For Nerd Kind.
I'm not usually one for silliness but Andrew Beer has been working hard in the background trying to programme the Arduino to play ZX Spectrum .TZX files without the need to convert to a .WAV. Today he has managed to do that with some .TZX files but also with .TAP files as well. The code is still very much in the early stages so the compatibility with.TZX files is still relatively low but in theory all .TAP files should work. I only have 5,246 to test.
What's even better is that the code will work on both the Arduitape and the CASDuino hardware by just uploading the programme to the Nano.

Simply download this file, unzip and load in the Arduino IDE.

TZXDuino in the wild

One of the things we've wanted from this project is for people to go out and build their own versions and show us pictures.

Well Piotr Bugaj not only has built his own but 3D printed his own case and designed a Shield for the Nano.
 SMD version.










 Non SMD version
















Piotr has also released the schematic, pcb, and gerber files. They can be downloaded from here.
