TZXDuino Update v0.8b3

Andrew has made a huge leap forward with this update with almost every TZX I've tried working (one fail out of 100s) on the Spectrum and reports of similar compatibility with Amstrad files too. TAP files are also working with no fails too.

With over 5,000 TZX games for Spectrum it's still a beta release but probably the last beta for a while before a final release.

TZXDuino v0.8b3


  1. Ducan Greetings, I'm Alfredo Retrocant. I'm doing the testings by games Amstrad and all the tests that I currently miss about 20 games none has errors, as you say success is close to this project and the work you are doing Adrew is fascinating. We continue to do testings to close the TZXDUINO project to make it end as soon as possible. Greetings to all.

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.

 Non SMD version

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