Sharp MZ-5600

The Sharp 5600 uses the EOS 16, which resembles UNIX and is compatible with CP/m and CP/M 86, and can also operate programs for MS DOS 1.4 and 2.0

Sharp also produced a Z80 card for the machine which enables it to run programs designed for EOS V3 or CP/M 80.

The MZ 5600 supports several disk formats: 640 KB (when it is used with MSDOS), 800 KB (to use programs written for the MZ 3541) or 320 KB (old MS-DOS format).

Internally the machine has an Intel 8086 processor running at 4mHz, 256Kb of RAM, and runs off a 5.25 Disk Drive, and has an RS232 interface.
