If I'm not wrong, this is not the last source.

It may work with the right firmware and an additional adapter to plug the card into the bus connector.

Yeah. I think Martin said a while ago that they are working on updated version, which is not public (yet).

Any news on the Unicard for the MZ-700? Just what I need to breathe life back into the machine in the loft (once I’ve repaired the smoking PSU!).

I have an PCG for the 700 in the loft too. I should list it for sale!

Hello,
I am possibly interested in the 700 PCG.
You sell it at what price?

Direct message me with an offer?

Experimented briefly with a universal Z80-IDE about ten years ago without much success - I definitely prefer the SD card approach and emulating existing devices means you don't have to modify the BIOS.

This approach seems really interesting - https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/SharpMZ_MiSTer - using an FPGA to emulate the entire machine. Potentially more durable given most Sharps must be in their 30s or older!

I really interesting project would be to build a machine based on the new Zilog eZ80 chipset backwards compatible with MZ-800/700/80x leveraging Unicard functionality. Giving some really funky graphics and potentially rewriting CP/M to access the huge amount of memory available.

But alas my soldering skills aren't up to SMD and the day job calls - perhaps a retirement project...

Ηi to all out there!

Do you know if there is a MZ80B future support of the unicard.
I am searching for a floppy interface for my SHARP MZ80B!

thank you for your time
