Has anyone put the Sam Coupe onto a single CHIP like a ALTER Stratix or Cyclone FPGA? It would be a great project and has been done for other old machines !

hi, i wrote software for this computer in its last days of manufacture. There was an IO peripheral device which i think was trying to change the cutomer base from a home computer to an industrial control and logging center. I was only about 13 at the time and was over the moon about being given the chance to write published software.

I believe I owned the second ever SAM sold in the UK. Shortly after my Spectrum died I went looking for a replacement, but apparently there was a shortage of spectrums due to the computer system at the manufacturing plant being hacked and PCB layouts altered, resulting in a recall. I came across this beast and bought it as a replacement. Here's a little tip, you can effectively turboload any programs on tape by playing the tape in hi-speed dubbing mode if your player supports it. It loads nearly twice as fast.

Hi, I am searching for 8bit computers that can produce photo like graphics. So far the Atari800XL is winning with its 256 color mode ( 16 shades of grey mixed with 16 colors giving 256 individual colors on screen at once.) What about the sam coupe. If anybody has any info on the graphics side I would love to hear from you. Please email any info, pictures of the power of the 128 colors of the sam coup.
