SIO2PC Universal Interface (RS232 and USB Editions)

©2012 Steven J Tucker

Introduction

The Atarimax Universal SIO2PC/ProSystem interface is a redesign of the classic Atari SIO2PC/APE and ProSystem interfaces, combining them into a single multi-function product.

The new design is completely auto-sensing, auto-switching and jumperless. When ProSystem style software is used, the interface switches itself automatically to ProSystem mode for controlling Atari disk drives.

The professionally manufactured interface is includes a real Atari SIO jack so there is no need to destroy an SIO cable to use it. A terminal block version of the interface is also available for use with cut SIO cables.

The USB version of this interface is a native full speed USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 compatible device with an onboard 48mhz MPU with field upgradeable firmware. The USB version of the interface is currently supported by APE for Windows version 3.0.0 or higher, running on Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7.

For more detailed information on the USB interface, please browse the documentation at the bottom of this page.

The RS232/Serial version of the interface is compatible with all SIO2PC/APE style software, supporting RI, DSR and CTS style signalling without the use of any jumpers or dip switches. The RS232/Serial port version of this interface is supported by APE for Windows, APE for DOS and many other SIO2PC programs for DOS, Windows, Linux and OSX.

As of version 3.0.5, APE for Windows includes digitally signed device drivers with full support for both USB and RS232 interfaces on all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows, including Windows 7 and going all the way back to Windows 95!

Important Note: This product requires a SIO cable and real Atari 8-bit computer/disk drive to function. These items are not included with purchase.
