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.

New Products

We introduced several brand new projects: the universal C64/C128 cartridges with PLCC socket Unicart/D and Unicart, the Microsoft SoftCard compatible Z-80 card GZ-80 and the A2SCSI SCSI card for Apple II series and the arduino compatible SSR1/A solid state relay shield.
We redesigned the CGA2RGBv2 Digital RGB to Analog RGB converter with additional support for EGA and MDA.
We also done some minor updates to the T232, the F2R16 and the GLINK232T.
Finally, to keep up our 6502 programming skills, we developed two new applications: the GMT Memory tester for Apple IIgs and C64/C128 and the GTERM VT100 terminal emulator for Commodore 64 computers.
