Port Usages

Having so many add-on modules it is essential to know which port (out of the 256 available ports) are used by each module.

The "early" may only have one (or some mirrored) address(es), so that these modules must be placed at these ports. Modern modules (like the one from ...) have the possibility to change their configuration I/O addresses on the module

Software

As mentioned in this thread (04-09-2018), the following software tools are expecting devices at the following ports:

1.Microsoft BASIC, for 32k RAM, 68B50 ACIA, with origin 0x0000 (Label "R")

2.Microsoft BASIC, for 56k RAM, 68B50 ACIA, with origin 0x0000 (Label "K")

3.CP/M Monitor, for pageable ROM, 64k RAM, 68B50 ACIA, CF Module at 0x10, with origin at 0x0000 (Label "1")

4.Microsoft BASIC, for 32k RAM, SIO/2, with origin 0x0000 (Label "2")

5.Microsoft BASIC, for 56k RAM, SIO/2, with origin 0x0000 (Label ("4")

6.CP/M Monitor, for pageable ROM, 64k RAM, SIO/2, CF Module at 0x10, with origin at 0x0000 (Label "6")

7.CP/M Monitor, for pageable ROM, 64k RAM, ACIA, CF Module at 0x10, with origin at 0x0000 (Label ("88")

8.Small Computer Monitor for any ROM, any RAM, any UART (Label ("9")

9.RomWBW RC_Std.ROM 2.9.0 (Label 1.512k)

10.Fuzix

11.CP/M IDE

Actually I do not see any reason, why the software should NOT run under SC112 and SC113.
