Feature request - Z80 emulation

I suspect this is a tall order....

Back in the day I believe it was common as CP/M evolved to swap out the 8080 card for a Z80 CPU card.

The little Altair 8800micro would have a much increased software library available to it if it emulated the Z80.

Is this possible? difficult?

Cheers!

Re: firmware version V52 now available

Hi Guys!

I installed v5.2 without issue. I used the VGA option.

Huge speed increase on loads immediately obvious.

I like the new "micro command shell". Thanks for your work!!

Re: Disk Controller board beta run preorders!

I got mine up and running. How many of the 20 are now complete? I replaced the 10 uF capacitors on the main board and laid the new ones on their side. Desoldering from a doublesided board like this was more challenging than I thought. This is really kewl! The only bummer is the length of time it tak...

All of the CP/M systems I've played with have been Z80 based. I believe the Altair8800 emulates the 8080. Does this make a difference to softwar...

Re: What serial numbers have shipped?

Kit #104 is kicking ass and taking names in Ontario, Canada.

It worked first time without a hitch.

Way to go Vince! I'm checking out your CP/M progress and cheering!
