I looked into those variants and, from what I could tell, none of them will run 100% Z80 code.
I am building a retro console/computer similar to the Propeddle. However, my goal is to use a real Z80 (retro coolness) but also use the prop to emulate the TMS9918 and various sound chips like the AY-3-8910 and SN76489. This console will hopefully run ColecoVision games.
Now, I have several of these:https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12009
What I thought I might do is check out the schematic of those (seem pretty simple) and design something similar for the two-way communication of my 3.3v components and 5v components.
I still have to study the datasheets more, however, to see how feasible that is.
