Faires and Exhibits

This year our team attended two maker faires (Bay area and East Bay) where we met many friends, a few customers and introduced retrocomputing to hordes of curious kids. We also attended VCF West where we shared a the apple II booth with our friends from Manila Gear.

New Products

We introduced a few brand new projects: the GRAM/1D 1MB geoRAM compatible cartridge and the 4MB version GRAM/4D, the GLINK232T Turbo232 clone for the Commodore 8-bit Computers and redesigned the GRAM/8 8MB expansion for the Apple IIgs in a smaller form factor.
We also developed a fully SMD version of the GLINK-LT and improved compatibility of the E2R16 TL866 EPROM adapter.
