BeebuiTape (Acorn version) new design.
It is used to play UEF files (games and apps) from a MicroSD card through an audio cable into where the tape deck would normally plugin thus eliminating the need for a 30-year-old tape deck. Its a play only function so no record feature. You can still record using conventional methods though. Simply find your favourite game or app in UEF file format, copy it to the sd card and the rest is straightforward. It was designed for BBC and Acorn computers. Its based on an MaxDuino. Now with mostly SMD components.
If you opt for it we provide an audio cable and a USB cable but you will need a power source for the USB or a 6v-9v adapter. Any will do since it doesn’t require a great deal of power to run. When purchasing a microSD card do not get a cheap or a super-fast one like a class 10 card. Look for a class 4, 6, or 8. You will need a data cassette cable. You can purchase these below here or from Cool Novelties. You will have to use UEF-Extractor to decompress the UEF files before adding them to the sd card. If you don't want to buy one of our USB cables it requires a MINI-A USB power source.
Please note that firmware also supports other file formats and can be used with other computers like ZX spectrum. The firmware is setup more suited for this specific computer. To save memory not all file types are added. If you want to know more send us a message.
