Arduino Uno based Mark III.

Arduino Uno based Mark III.

In a bid to make the overall dimensions smaller and also easier to build I have built the Mark III which is based on an Arduino Uno board, which is more expensive but a more reliable USB port and a built in DC power in port.

The button board is still the same but there is a slight change in the design of the filter board.

I may have left off one extra ground pin on the design.

Because of how the Uno is built you can connect everything directly to the board using female to male dupont wires. I was lucky enough to have an Uno board with both male and female headers so I had even more flexibility.

And heres the final build.

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.

This fixes issues with pause lengths that we never noticed before. It should fix games like Top Gun and Street Hawk for the Spectrum and make CDT files behave as they should for the Amstrad CPC.Changes.
*Maximum pause length of 8.3 seconds due to the TimerOne library has been worked around.
*ID20 Pause Block fixed.
*Temporary fix for pause after motor control removed.!aEt1VJKZ!ZFw-fP3bkNTtiPlbG_IllmR94Xni3KvIGUn6Jggfof8
