UPDATE: I've updated the circuit diagrams to version 1.3. There are only minor changes:
SpeccyBob is a computer that you can build yourself from readily available parts. It is compatible with the Sinclair ZX Spectrum of the 1980's. There are two versions of SpeccyBob:
SpeccBob while maintaining compatibility with the original Spectrum adds and improves to the design. Features include selection video modes, IDE interface, upto 4Mb RAM etc.
SpeccyBob Lite is basically just a clone of the Sinclair Spectrum. Currently, this is the version that I am working on before adding the extra features of SpeccyBob. Alas, I had virtually completed the design until the great disk crash of 2001 came along. so here goes again from the beginning.
SpeccyBob is Designed around 3 separate circuit boards, the timing and clock generation board, the video output board, and the CPU/IO board. As I complete and test each board, the schematics will be placed here.
