This kit contains all the parts needed to upgrade a standard 32K RC2014 Classic or RC2014 Classic II kit running BASIC in to a 64K RC2014 running CP/M. Essentially, it comprises of a Pageable ROM Module, a 64k RAM Module and a Compact Flash Module, along with a PROM pre-programmed with Microsoft BASIC, SCM and CP/M Console, and a 128mb or 64mb compact flash with CP/M 2.2 installed. The compact flash socket is a surface mount component, and will be supplied pre-soldered to the PCB.
This kit is only suitable for upgrading a RC2014 Classic or RC2014 Classic II. You will be using the backplane, clock, CPU module and serial I/O module from that kit. You will also be reusing the 62256 RAM, 74HCT04 and 74HCT32 chips from the ROM and the RAM modules.
The Classic II CP/M Upgrade Kit represents a saving compared to buying the modules individually – however, if you already have components such as a blank compact flash card, or are happy soldering the CF socket yourself, you may be better off picking and choosing from the separate module options.
