I don't know either, but I think that the Be Box has pretty flexible
hardware.  It should have some programmable I/O lines at TTL levels.

Don't forget my C2N232 device, which allows any 8-bit Commodore to be
connected to an RS-232 serial line.  Okay, it's still a bit vaporware,
since I haven't had time to finish debugging the plus/4 routines, and I
haven't started to port it to the CBM 720 yet, and the restructured
version of prlink I'm working on doesn't handle file or disk transfers
yet; only memory transfers.  But hopefully, if I get some time during the
Christmas break, I'll finish the code and publish it.
