PLEASE NOTE: Due to overwhelming demand, please allow a minimum of 3 weeks from date-of-order to date-of-receipt.

We have taken on extra staff just to process CMM2 orders; and we will attempt to ship your order as soon as we can. We do hold the stock, it is just the time that it takes to process many orders that is causing the current delay. We apologise for this inconvenience.

This is the ‘Fully Assembled SMD’ version of the new Colour Maximite (the CMM2).
It does NOT require a plug-in STM32 module (the KIT version does require an STM32 module).

The Colour Maximite 2 is a small self contained computer inspired by the home computers of the early 80’s such as the Tandy TRS-80, Commodore 64 and Apple II. It includes its own BASIC interpreter and powers up in under a second 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 concept is borrowed from computers of the 80’s the technology used is very much up to date. The CPU that powers the Colour Maximite 2 is an ARM Cortex-M7 32-bit RISC processor running at a minimum of 400MHz, with 2MB flash memory and 1MB RAM. This processor includes its own video controller and generates a VGA output at resolutions up to 800×600 pixels and with up to 16-bit colour.

The Colour Maximite is designed to be simple to use, and will guarantee endless fun.

This KIT is the ‘mother-board’ version of the new Colour Maximite (the CMM2).
It requires a plug-in STM32 module (and the two 80-way connectors it plugs into). These items are NOT included in this kit, however, they are readily available online.

NOTE: A new version of the Colour Maximite (the CMM2) is about to be released! Contact us for details and reservation!

The Colour Maximite Computer is based on MMBASIC; the extremely powerful, yet easy-to-use, programming environment.

Simply connect a VGA monitor, a PS2 keyboard, and a power-supply, and you have an extremely powerful standalone computer. Programs can be stored on a full-size SD card.

It really is the ideal tool for learning MMBASIC, as well as experimenting with external hardware & modules. There are even some classic games available for download including: Space Invaders, Donut Dilema, and Maxman (i.e. PacMan).

Think of the Colour Maximite as a modern version of an 80’s Home Computer (such as the ZX Spectrum, BBC Micro, or Commodore VIC).

This kit comes with the three surface mount components pre-soldered; it also includes pre-cut Front and Rear panels. See below for a full summary of features.
