T232 - Simple DB9 RS232 monitor and breakout board

T232RS232 monitors are quite common but most of them use the standard good old DB25 connectors. The majority of the RS232 ports in use today however use the smaller DB9 connector. This forces the use chains of adapters to get the commercial monitor/breakout boards working. The GGLABS T232 solves the problem by providing native DB9 connections.

UNICART/D - Universal Commodore 64/128 Cartridge with Passthrough

ramgsThis cartridge was originally developed to speed up the manufacturing diagnostic of our GRAM and GLINK232 products. Having to load the diagnostic for every board is pretty tedious and time consuming. The UNICART/D allows to have a custom ROM for both C64 and C128 while allowing to still plug in an additional cartridge.

GLINK232T - Turbo232 UART cartridge for Commodore 64/128

glink232Both the commodore 64 and the 128 have a software UART implementation that limits the useful speed to 2400 bauds. To work around this limitation Dr. Evil Labs and later CMD produced the SwiftLink232 and Turbo232 cartridges based on the 6551 ACIA chip. Both of these have been out of production for a very long time. GLINK232T is a modern replacement for the CMD Turbo232 allowing the commodore 64/128 to communicate at speeds up to 230400 bauds.
