BBC B Micro ROM??

Postby twellys » Thu May 19, 2022 8:48 am

Haven't posted in a while - Covid/moving house often/getting a divorce/et al.

Anyway, on my travels (probably early 2000s), I picked up some extraenous BBC Micro/Archimedes odds and ends. Most of that is lost in the house moves. Anyway, one of them was a little PCB with an EPROM, a PAL, and a header on - I'm guessing it's a BBC B (EP)ROM 'coz the writing on the PCB says "Acornsoft Trilogy Emulator". Looked on the web, but no luck as yet. Does anyone know what it's for please?

Possibly a terminal emulator program. Acornsoft had a number of these (Termulator, for example).

The term "emulator" changed a bit over the decades.
