The Z50Bus is a suggestion for a system expansion bus for 8-bit microcomputers. It’s designed to be compact, yet compatible, taking inspiration from previous standard bus layouts, and bringing it into a modern age. Being also inspired by the popular RC2014, it allows for easy adaptation of existing designs. The name of the Z50Bus comes from being originally designed to use a 50-pin connector to integrate a system around a Z80 CPU. Being a simple bus specification, it is possible to use/integrate it with other 8-bit CPUs using some glue logic.

Z50Bus Prototype Card

With the Z50Bus being based around a dual-row 50-pin connector, laying out a fast prototype of perf-board is no problem. But wouldn’t it be nice to not have to deal with the wiring complexity of a dual-row 2.54mm pitch connector? Now that’s no problem at all, using this prototyping card designed specifically for use with Z50Bus compatible systems!

Adapters and converters for LiNC80 and Z50Bus

The LiNC80 family of 8-bit computers have been built with expandability in mind. The Z50Bus interface allows easy addition of expansion cards, and the on-board connector for ROM expansion makes for a flexible system. To cater to these features, and make building on the system, a set of adapters are available:
