Old TK-80 system working

Post by juntakei »

Hello everyone.
And thanks to Jeff.
I am JUN. I live in Japan.

When I was around 1983, I connected Junk's 8-inch floppy to my own TK-80E/BS made by NEC equipped with
8080 processor via my own FDC board and made a simple original OS, mainly the synthesizer I enjoyed playing.

I wanted to operate this system again in October of last year, I improved and got to work. It's surprising
that it works normally as it is over 30 years old.

This floppy is single sided single density, I bought SD_HxC_Floppy_Emulator to eliminate the movable part
of the floppy. And I succeeded in making it work, so I will send you a picture of my system.

Hi Jun,
Thats a very nice TK-80 setup. I always wanted to get one.
I do have nice a TK-85 that I got when I was living in Tokyo, but it's just the plain motherboard with no expansions. Do you know if anyone (in Japan) makes expansion board for them?
