I am proud to present the availability of a lot of I/O functionality
for the C64 expansion port! I have now designed, built and tested the
CS/A bus adaptor for the C64 that makes a lot of CS/A cards available
for the C64:

- fast serial (UART) interface
- WD1770 PC-style floppy interface 
- infrared interface (from the Gecko)
- additional video card
- IEEE488
...

and last but not least:

- the long awaited SCSI harddisk interface for the C64!
  -----------------------------------------------------

(I admit I have only tested it with the SCSI interface, but it should
run with the other CS/A cards as well... - it works with SCSI!)

On the Adapter homepage

        http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/~fachat/8bit/c64/csa/index.html

you find the schematics, the description and the parts list of the
adapter. Also there is a "cookbook" example on how to "implode"
the adapter with a normal CS/A I/O card - as example the SCSI
board is used (this is untested. D*mn, the adapter schematics 
worked right out of the box, so why bother checking my schematics....)
resulting in a single C64 SCSI interface.

The description, schematics and driver (also for the C64!) of the 
SCSI interface can be found in 

        http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/~fachat/8bit/hardware/csa/index.html

(you have to scroll down to the I/O cards to find the SCSI interface.)

The adapter is also an example on how to adapt the CS/A bus to 
other 6502-based computers, like the VIC or the PET for example.

Have fun!
Andre
