Speech Synthesizer - SP0256 (Circa 1992)

"I recently found this project from 1992 while opening boxes from our house move.
I guess you could call it a self contained speak jet unit. The eeprom is cycled via the 4040 to pluck the 'phenomes' from the sp0256-al2 to string robotic words together.
Using the venerable SP0256 speech chip and an eeprom to string the speech elements along this hardware interpretation could be a standalone speech unit. It is sadly not fully functional at present and due to its age not likely to get to my test bench quickly for diagnosis. In it's hay day it said such things as "Hello I am a computer", "Electronics is fun" "G0CPV" and my name.
The timing crystal for those of you who know this chip, is on the backside of the board.
This photo has notes. Move your mouse over the photo to see them."

"Synth-DIY UK 2009 will held on July 17th at Robinson College in Cambridge, the same great venue as we've used since 2003.

This is the 10th anniversary of Synth DIY-UK, so we'd like your help and support in making this the biggest and best Synth DIY UK event to date! We're trying to organise some events throughout the day, like trying to get the people from the first event together and a gig in the evening. As things develop we'll update this page.

We're starting to collect raffle prizes, if you have something you wish to donate for the raffle (which is for charity) then please let me know and I'll add you to the list below."
