 The final outcome is a very usable and complete Z80 soft-core based machine, running Digital Research CP/M 2.2 OS. The modular design concept allows for extensive hacks and mods. The final outcome is a very usable and complete Z80 soft-core based machine, running Digital Research CP/M 2.2 OS.

-Hope you enjoy it ! I've attached some pictures of my working system and the full VHDL ISE 14.7 Project tree files, including an already generated "​bit"​ file for transferring it to the Papilio Duo with the Computing Shield attached (default serial port baudrate is 9600, 8N1 no handshake).+Hope you enjoy it !
