Z80 Microcomputer Kits

I have for sale educational 8-bit computer kits which use the Z80 for the central processing unit (CPU). These microcomputer kits are based on designs made popular by Steve Ciarcia in his book Build Your Own Z80 Computer, Byte Books, 1981. I created these kits in response to requests by site visitors for an simple way to build Z80-based computers. The best way to get familiar with the kits for sale here is to read the kit instructions. If you are interested in purchasing a kit, or have any questions, please email me. I look forward to hearing from you.
