Start of a new computer, just a 7805 regulator.

Z-80 Homebrew MkII

I need to come up with a good name for this project… Anyhow, after my previous prototype I have decided to built a Z-80 project anew. Basically, the issue with the previous was lack of UART (I built one, had it working, then accidentally blew it up), the different boards and the masses of wires making the computer unstable and legs of my flash ROM getting bent from too much insertion and removal. Therefore, this one will all be on the same board, have custom sockets for expansion and a built in UART. I will also add a ZIF socket…
