    Spectrum Next Handheld Dan Birch

    Having already previously created a ZX Spectrum Next as a laptop, Dan Birch has scaled things down a bit more and somehow fangled his way into putting...
    Here I create a prototype ZX Spectrum Next handheld console using a custom miniaturised Next board, 5" HDMI screen and Nintendo DS D-Pad/Button assemblies.

    There's a large choice of emulation available for those who would like to program in ZX BASIC. I prefer Spectaculator myself, but I've also found FUSE...

    ZX Spectrum Next - as a laptop!

    This IS truly impressive. One talented Mr. Dan Birch was an early backer of the ZX Spectrum Next kickstarter (I was backer 202) and having had his bare-board...
    Here is my attempt at creating a Spectrum laptop with an 8" LCD based around the ZX Spectrum Next PCB.

    started a blog post Sinclair SE Chloe

    Sinclair SE Chloe

    The SE, codenamed Chloe, is a modified Timex TC2048. The modifications were specified by Andrew Owen and designed and implemented by Jarek Adamski. Within each section, you may find links to additional information elsewhere in this FAQ, or to other reference documents.

    Technical Specifications:
    The technical specifications for the ZX Spectrum SE are;
    • Codename: Chloe.
    • I/N: TC2280.
    • CPU: Z80A @ 3.528Mhz.
    • Total RAM: 280K.
    • Video RAM: 27K.
    • ROM: 64K (32K active, 32K passive)
    • Sound: AY-3-8912.
    • Keyboard: Cherry PS/2 Notebook.
    • Mouse: Amiga 2-Button.
    • Joystick: Kempston.

    Hardware: For most people, the final specification of the ZX Spectrum SE is probably not a concern, since it is just one potential system to run Sinclair Extended Basic on - although I would love to see it supported by emulators. If you were holding out for all those new graphics modes I dreamed up, or if you just want a modern Z80 based machine right now, then I would recommend the Sprinter from Peters Plus Ltd. I am working with Peters to ensure that Sinclair Extended Basic will run on the Sprinter. If you want to build your own Spectrum from off-the-shelf components then you should look at Mike Wynne's SpeccyBOB. In theory it should be possible to build a ZX Spectrum SE based on the SpeccyBOB schematics, and it will support Sinclair Extended Basic via a drop-in EPROM. If you got very excited when Zilo...
