CASDuino ported to the Maple Mini.

I've managed to get the CASDuino firmware up and running on the Maple Leaf Mini. It's not perfect, there are issues with 3600 baudrate and it cannot store your baudrate selection as of yet as the Maple Mini does not have an EEPROM to store your selection but it is now working. Sadly whilst .CAS files on the MSX work, the ones for the Dragon have been broken

TZXDuino is proving particularly stubborn at the moment, it is at least playing sound but is very stuttery and that also causes ID errors after the main loader.

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.
