Atari ST Floppy Adapter

Post by Atarian Computing » Sun Jul 08, 2018 4:16 pm

I ran into this thread and got inspired to have a crack at my own version: https://forum.atari-home.de/index.php/t ... 448.0.html

This has not been tested so keep that in mind. I also had to create the DIN14 symbol using only photos I took of the port and connector and their dimensions. Should be the right size. I spent way too much time on this :)

This looks nice and tidy! :) In theory, would you be able to connect up a CosmosEx externally using this adapter design, if you do a Drive A/B switch mod to your ST or STE? Power would be provided via a phone charger, which is what I use currently to get a decent current from instead of my STE board's connector.

None exist or have been produced by myself. This is something I made on Sunday so no guarantee it works :)

Or have you GERBER files to produce the adapter ?
