There is my C2N232I, but it has some problems. First, RS-232 is facing extinction, and good USB-to-RS232 adapters with good, cross-platform drivers are rare as hen's teeth. A USB CDC ACM version of the C2N232 could be worth considering. Second, I have not touched the code since 2003. Back then, the device successfully "emulated" a drive to a C64 and a VIC-20. What did not work was controlling a 1541. (The interface is supposed to be capable to act both as a controller and as a slave.) I guess that I should revive the effort soonish, because my programming software of the Vic Flash Plugin <http://www.iki.fi/~msmakela/8bit/vfp/> needs to load a multi-megabyte image file. I would prefer an "in-house" solution (you see, the "NIH syndrome"). Basically, all I would need is to write a small C program that drives the "slave" emulation of the C2N232I. In my tests in 2003, I "talked" with the C2N232I using a terminal emulator. Best regards, Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2011-04-27 08:00:07
