The latest offering for the Maximite series of computers - the new all powerful CMM2, Generation 2.


The Color Maximite 2 (CMM2) is a small self-contained computer inspired by the home computers of the early 80's such as the Tandy TRS-80, Commodore 64, Atari and Apple II. It includes its own BASIC interpreter and powers up instantly into the BASIC interpreter (there is no operating system to boot). The emphasis is on ease of use and, as a result, a first time user could enter a small program and have it running within minutes.

While the ease-of-use and built-in BASIC concept is borrowed from computers of the 80's the technology used is very much up to date. The CPU that powers the Color Maximite 2 is an ARM Cortex-M7 32-bit RISC processor running at up to 480MHz with 2MB flash memory and 1MB RAM. This processor includes its own video controller and generates a VGA output at resolutions up to 1920x1080 pixels and with up to 24-bit color.  Despite this unit running a BASIC programming interpreter(which is usually considdered slow), the CMM2 can process your program at more then 200,000 lines per-second.  That is very, very fast!

The Color Maximite is designed to be simple and fun. Our version of the Color Maximite 2 is the same as the kit version from magazine articles, except that ours is an assembled board.

Some features of the CMM2:

  • Extremely fast 480MHz ARM processor with 516KB of program memory and 24MB general purpose RAM.
  • VGA output with five resolutions from 1920x1080 pixels to 240x216 pixels with up to 24-bit colour (16M colours).
  • USB Keyboard (can be wireless with a USB dongle).
  • Mouse support added to the G2 version of the design
  • Support for SD cards up to 128GB formatted in FAT16, FAT32 or exFAT.
  • Extensive features for creating computer games. These include multiple video planes, support for Blits and Sprites and full support for the Nunchuk a game controller.
  • Stereo audio output can play WAV, FLAC and MP3 files, computer generated music (MOD format) and robot speech and sound effects.
  • Twenty eight input/output pins with 12 capable of analog input. Connector is compatible with Raspberry Pi Hats.
  • Power is 5 volts at 170mA typical (ie, from an USB port or charger).

We cannot include this, as batteries are a prohibited item.
