ZoomFloppy IEEE-488 Support

by on Jun.22, 2011, under Hardware Design

Thanks to the hard work of Thomas Winkler, ZoomFloppy now supports Commodore IEEE-488 devices.  Many thanks also to Nate Lawson for incorporating Thomas’ changes into the ZoomFloppy base firmware image.

Existing units require a firmware update and the population of the IEEE-488 connector fr operation.  As there is not a simple firmware update utility at present, users may wish to wait until an official upgrade solution is available.  However, users who wish to download some programming SW and follow a step by step tutorial can upgrade immediately (disclaimer:  RETRO Innovations takes no responsibility for upgrade issues, though there is no way to completely brick the unit.  At worst, RETRO Innovations can reprogram the unit and ship back to the customer).  All newly ordered units will contain the updated firmware.
