divIDE for Sinclair ZX Spectrum Designed

We have completed the design work on the divIDE hard disk interface for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Our version will include a through port to allow you to connect other peripherals, an integrated Compact Flash connector (so you can use a Compact Flash card rather than needing desk space for a hard disk and PSU), and the operating system will be on a Flash EPROM to allow you to upload a different version easily.

Unlike the PlusD interface, the divIDE will work with all models of the ZX Spectrum, including the Spectrum+2A,+2B and Spectrum+3 as well as the earlier models.

We are looking at the possibility of being able to use the divIDE at the same time as the ZX Microdrive or even a PlusD disk drive, in order to provide the maximum flexibility possible for users.

All this for around £48 plus p&p.


Production expected in September / October 2006
