21092Re: [midatlanticretro] Speech synthesis on the S100
- May 3 5:10 PMI've got some of the speech synth chips used with the Speak n Spell et al (they were also used in an IBM 8-bit ISA voice synth card...of which I was given probably 15-20 by the local school board when in middle school). That might be an interesting use for them!
I've got one of the N8VEM S-100 boards, but only have plans to populate the serial and parallel I/O controllers. Planning on using the 8530 in my 8085 SBC, and I'll be using the 8255 in an upcoming Apple II related project...
