  • SMART Card V2

    Posted on September 18th, 2017 Phil

    v2_1b_frontI’ve redesigned the SMART Card PCB so that it will physically fit all versions of the Spectrum. At the same time I’ve made a few improvements such as removing the DIP switches and adding auto-detect for the Spectrum 128+2A / 3. ┬áThe SMART Card V2 will of course be available from the store (when I’ve made some more:)

    On the software side, I’ve rewritten the game loader ROM – it now allows snapshots to be saved to the SD Card, Pokes to be entered (in all games not just those loaded from .taps as was the case before) and is generally neater looking. The new software should work fine on the V1 SMART Card too, so if you have one of those you can update it by installing the latest ROM from the project archive downloadable here.

    Update: 26/9/2017: I’ve also made a toolkit ROM which allows SD Cards to be formatted to FAT16 actually in the SMART Card (even those larger than 4GB).
