USB Cartridge Introduction February 27, 2015

Posted by sandyclaus in Uncategorized.
add a comment

The ABBUC USB cartridge is a professionally produced USB host adapter for the Atari 8-bit computers.

The software for this cartridge is currently in very early beta development, but already understands keyboards, joysticks, steering wheels and other simple USB devices.

The USB cartridge chipset supports communication with both ‘low speed’ and ‘high speed’ USB 1.1 compatible devices.

The software for the USB Cartridge is completely open source and is part of the MicroUSB project. For up to date information on the state of the software support for this device, please visit the Atari XL/XE section of the MicroUSB.org web site.

As production hardware becomes available the available software and number of devices supported will certainly increase quickly.

The USB cartridge is designed by ABBUC e.V. and manufactured in co-operation with Atarimax.

In 1999, I started messing around with my old 8-bit BBS programs, and with lots of  help and encouragement from Tom Hunt, I put the new Boot Factory 2k+ BBS online accessible from the internet.  This BBS ran on the A800Win emulator that Tom had modified.  It works great.  Sysoping was fun again.

In Feb 2003, I had to shut the BBS down due to me needing the space in the room.  It is still down now but as you can see from the picture above, the Atari equipment is back up and I hope to put the BBS back online in the not too distant future.  The link above should work when it goes back online and I have been running it on and off recently.

From Dershowitz, Solomon moved on to evolutionary biology, and then to Stephen Hawking and cosmology, and then biblical criticism, until finally, he was unable to deny the conclusion his newly developed capacity for critical thinking had led him to: he no longer believed in the existence of God.

The ZAGG Pocket wireless Bluetooth® keyboard for iPhone and iPad is the easiest, on-the-go solution to smartphone typing. Delivering over 85% the size of a desktop keyboard, the Pocket maintains fast, natural typing, and then folds into a compact, protective case that easily fits into pockets and purses. And, unlike other folding keyboards, the Pocket folds between lines of keys to preserve comfortable key spacing so you can get more done, naturally.
