New prototype: External floppy disk adapter for Amiga


Many customers asked for it and we built an external floppy disk adapter for Amiga.  It supports both Shugart and IBM PC floppy drive pinouts with jumper configurations. This means it can connect Amiga, IBM PC and Gotek floppy drives as DF1: DF2: or DF3:. To use it as an external DF0: for Amiga 500, you need to “tweak” the motherboard prior being able to do this.

We sucessfully tested the adapter with a standard IBM PC 1.44 floppy drive (in Amiga 880KB mode).  Here it is, running the Spaceballs II demo (2 disks) :
We also connected a Gotek drive with HxC firmware sucessfully.
Production units will be available around Q4 2017 or Q1 2018
