RC2014 - Z80 Kit Computer
The RC2014 is a kit computer based on the Z80 processor. The Z80 was a highly popular processor used in 1970s and 1980s home computers, from which the RC2014 is based.
The RC2014 'is not a clone of anything specific, but there are suggestions of the ZX81, UK101, S100, Superboard II and Apple I...It nominally has 8K ROM, 32K RAM, runs at 7.3728MHz and communicates over serial at 115,200 baud.' It was designed to allow for modular expansion, either with modules supplied by the makers of the RC2014 or with homemade additions. It boots into Microsoft BASIC and can also be programmed with Z80 machine code.
Our RC2014 is complete in kit form with assembly instructions. Also included is a trump card for the system, produced by the donor and designed to match the Home Computer Trump Cards sold through our shop.
