I just uploaded an archive to the FTP containing ROM dumps, disk images and documentation from the Philips P2000C - another Z80 CP/M machine. It was already mentioned on this forum, but it seems the machine was not added at the time.

The other members of the Philips P2000 family, P2000T and P2000M, are already emulated in MAME.

I received a P2000C from a fellow member of the German vintage computer forum, but as these things go, a capacitor decided to release its magic smoke 20 mins after I first turned it on. Awaiting replacements ...

I've replaced the filter capacitor on the P2000, and it's back to running smoothly again.

Nice graphics for the time:

Quoting a vcfred thread: "The machine has a CPU board with a separate "terminal" board that is connected to the CPU board via a TTL level serial link, so the display looks like a dumb terminal to the computer."

This guy is repairing his terminal board, some useful information there, but there are full schematics in the manuals I posted.
