Rainbow Project MkII

Rainbow Project is a creation of an 8 bit Single Board Computer (SBC) from scratch. It uses a Zilog Z80 CPU and was designed and built from basic components. Last year we presented our first prototype (MkI) running a basic assembly demo program, showing instruction execution and presenting results on a small 16X2 LCD. This year, our MkII prototype extends the capabilities:

- Allows for peripheral cards to be added (has an expansion bus)
- Displays graphics and text on a real computer monitor, using a Raspberry PI based graphics card we designed
- Adds a hex keyboard for interactivity
- Runs an interactive computing knowledge game
