We have now arranged to take on marketing of two new products for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, both built in the Netherlands to a high standard, and fully compatible with the DivIDE Plus Compact Flash Interface. We have re-written the manuals to be more user friendly and these products will be listed for sale soon on our new retro computer website - SellMyRetro.com
ZX Spectrum PC Keyboard Interface
The first of these products is the PC Keyboard Interface. This allows you to connect a UK/US English or Spanish PS/2 keyboard to the Sinclair ZX Spectrum and this then replaces the Spectrum's own keyboard. You can even use a USB keyboard if you have an adaptor.
The PC Keyboard Interface works perfectly together with the following:
- ZX Spectrum 16K / 48K / 48K+ / 128K / +2
- DivIDE / DivIDE Plus
- MB02 / MB02+IDE – solving compatibility issues at the moment (updated 14 dec 2008)
- Kempston Mouse Turbo (first version)
The interface even provides you additional function, including the ability to record macros which are retained for when you switch on the Spectrum.
ZX Spectrum K-Mouse 2008 Interface
several games have been converted to work with the interface by Velesoft.
This interface also incorporates a Kempston compatible joystick interface, with automatic switching between the two types of control (you cannot use them both at the same time, but pressing a mouse button or moving the joystick diverts control to that peripheral).
You can even add a composite video connector to the interface to provide composite video for a standard Spectrum.
