    Z8 is the ORIGINAL micro controller from Zilog... I thought you'd be lucky to buy one let alone simulate one..

    You would be better off with something current...

    I think they stopped making them back in the 80's


    The eZ8 encore is the new micro.... There are tools avalable on Zilog's page.

    The Z8!
    I think I have one with "basic" burned into it. Something like a basic stamp. I have not seen it at least 20 years.

    Wasn't the Z80, the original? I used to know that... long time ago!

    The Z80 was an enhanced 8080 mincroprocessor clone. The Z8 was the first micro controller.
