A small order of Sharp Z80A chips came in today, so I'll have a few on-hand if someone with the incompatible NEC chip wants to order DK Remix.

They cost me 10$ each so I can just add it at cost if someone needs one.

It seems I made a grave error when I ordered those chips and didn't notice that they were Sharp LH0084A chips instead of Sharp LH0080A chips, and they're not CPUs at all, but some other peripheral chip.

So, I have useless chips and no Z80As for people with the NEC chip...   (insert angry face here)

I'm kinda starting to pull my hair out because the chip I'm waiting for to complete the boards is quite late at actually getting here.   Whenever it actually comes in, I can start shipping more boards the next day after.

The next set *after* this set should not take so long.

Yeah, I got tired of waiting so I ordered more chips from a different supplier.

Got my remix board today!
Didn't check before hand I have the nec z80 chip....

Not to worried about it, I plan to buy another board set.

My question is can I take the z80 chip from my Dkjr or Dk3?

Thanks

Yes, if you have another arcade PCB that has a Zilog, Sharp or other Z80/Z80A CPU in it, it'll work if you move that chip into your DK/Remix board.  Chances are the NEC D780C will probably work fine in the other arcade PCB as well.

Yes. I had a Z80-C in my DK, and a Z80-A in my Junior and my Popeye.

I put my Popeye's Z80-A into the Remix board, put the Z80-C into Popeye, and everything is fine. DK likes the Z80-A that was in Popeye, and Popeye likes the Z80-C that was in DK.
