That's the only thing it is doing (converting PET edge connector to female IEEE-488.) My apologies for not describing it in more detail (the curse of being too close to a project). Though, is that all it should do? I mean, I'm not asking for suggestions to add lots to the device, but: * Is there a project out that adds joysticks or IEC routines to the IEEE pins? If so, should I put a footprint for a joystick or an IEC port on the PCB? * I probably could fit an RTC footprint on some pins there in a way that would not interfere with normal operation... o EEPROM would also work, if the above works. * blinkelights on the signal lines, to allow it to be used for debugging IEEE issues? (Obviously, this would need a power source, but that's not insurmountable) IEEE-488 is not my forte, but I do hate to waste space on a PCB.
