Some of you may have heard of the P112 single board computer kit and have been wondering when more will be available. If you don't know what the P112 is, it's a single board computer that uses the Zilog Z180 microprocessor to run CP/M and similar operating system. There's a flavor of Unix for it called UZI-180. This is a kit, that is, you solder it together yourself.

I've started a Kickstarter project to finance a new run of PCBs and parts. See http://661.org/p112/ to read about the P112 and download the user manual. A kit is $100 with $12 extra for shipping outside the US. This gets you the board with surface-mount parts soldered on, a boot ROM, two CDs full of stuff, and two serial port pigtails. I didn't want to make complete kits this time round because my costs for doing so have gone way up. Instead I have prepared a shared project on Mouser.com with most of what you'll need. Two parts need to be obtained from Digikey instead.

The Kickstarter.com page is http://www.kickstart...rd-computer-kit. Feel free to email me with any questions.

Very cool. It's not for me, but best of luck on your project!
