PiDRIVE ZERO Raspberry Pi HAT 1541 1581 Commodore 64 128 Vic-20 Emulator OLED Pi



 Works with RaspberryPi ZERO

The Commodore4ever piDrive ZERO has it all!

As far as I know this is the very first design to feature ALL of the same options as a full size pi1541 for the Pi 3 series. So don't sell yourself short! 


The PiDrive ZERO combines the same great quality and functionality as the pihat for the 3b, 3b+ and 3a+ with a more SUPER compact design!


This device will turn your RaspberryPi Zero into a cycle exact 1541 and 1581 emulator. Simple to set up and start using. No special cables are required. The firmware for the Zero is still under development. Some features have yet to be implemented and there may be some bugs. You can keep up with the latest releases at
