The BBC Master Computer

The BBC Master Computer

The BBC Master Computer was the successor to the Model B+ with a Commodore 65SC12 processor and 128K of RAM.  There were several variants of this machine including the Master Compact and some more specialist models e.g. for the BBC Doomsday System.  Other enhancements included built-in cartridge slots and a 'mega' ROM which provided several Filing System and Language options as standard.  There was also a range of co-processors that could be fitted internally.  Econet was provided via a plug-in module - ADF10 (follow the link to see my replica PCB).  I will also shortly have a Master GOTEK available.

I'm not going to try and go into any more detail here as there is loads of information on BBC Master Computers elsewhere on the web but here are a few useful resources:
