What you need.

For this build you will need the following

95x54mm of veroboard or larger.
1 x Serial I2C 1602 16x2 Character LCD Module
1 x Arduino Nano V3.0 (or cheap knockoff)
1 x Micro SD Storage Board For Arduino
1 x DIL32  Wide Socket
4 x 4.7k Resistors
3 x 4.7nF Capacitors
1 x 100nF Capacitor
1 x LM386 Audio Amplifier
1 x 3.5 mm Female Jack
1 x 2.5 mm Female Jack
5 x Tactile Buttons
A strip of Male Pin Headers
A strip of Right Angle Male Pin Headers
Some jumper wire
Some female to female Dupont cables.

Optional.
1 x Tactile Button for a reset switch
1 x DC Socket Charger Power Jack Plug if you do not trust the USB socket to provide adequate power for the Arduino Nano.

All of these can be found relatively cheaply on eBay just make sure you check where they are being delivered from as it takes up to 4 weeks to get to you from China.

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.
