Current Technology & Dev boards
Microbee Technology designs & manufactures
development boards for rapid prototyping and
We have our FTM-3SE Freescale Tower System
compatible Xilinx Spartan 3E FPGA board.

We also have a Xilinx Spartan 6LX based
SO-Dimm module with onboard SRAM
and config flash. More information <here>
Kits for hobbyists & Retro-Tech enthusiasts
Following on from our very popular Premium Plus kit, we have a number of new kit computers
in development. The first of these to be released wil be the ‘Classic Plus’ kit (shown, right).
This is a bare bones Microbee, without a case, fully backward compatible with our
older models but including Sdcard Floppy disk emulation, real floppy disk interface
option with support for Double & High Density disks, Arduino Shield compatible
expansion slot (option), along with all of the regular Parallel port, serial port and
RGB color graphics. Hybrid kit - a small number of SMD parts will be pre-loaded and
the rest of the parts will need to be soldered into the board by the kit builder.
Following on from the Classic Plus, we will have the
‘TC Plus’ - the same board as the Classis Plus but with the
keyboard section left un-populated, housed in the ‘256TC / Teleterm’ case
(shown, left) with an all new 96 key serial keyboard.
The ‘Delta Plus’ will use the same case, but with a more complex design for higher performance.
A dual processor design (like the Premium Plus) but with a Z8S180 @ 33Mhz & a Coldfire V4 processor
and higher resolution graphics to run full Linux. [Details may change]
