Here's the Hackaday link to the project Z80-MBC2: 4ICs homemade Z80 computer | Hackaday.io[^].
Quote:
The MCU Atmega32A is used as universal I/O subsystem, as Eeprom, and as reset and 4/8MHz clock generator for the Z80 CPU.
Inside the Atmega32A it is flashed an Arduino bootloader taken from here, and it is possible to use the Board Manager of the Arduino IDE to "import" it.

Can you (did you) build one yourself?


I bought the board and am soldering components, a lot of the are on order so it will be a while before I can update.

Is it just a serial interface?

There is a community that offers other boards for this chip/board but I'm at an early stage so if I can get it running on serial I'll be happy and then go from there.

Is there a hardware programmer with USB interface?

I have a hardware programmer to program the ATMega32A, I work with Atmel devices a lot. I use an USBTiny programmer but clones are very cheap on Fleabay. USBTiny USBtinyISP AVR ISP programmer for Arduino bootloader Meag2560 uno r3 711331264374 | eBay[^]
