Is someone interresting in new MSX uni interface, which may be several outputs and inputs, such as digital and analog inputs and outputs in corridors and exits, where voltage and ohms and many other variables are measured.
There are several mount prints for different quantities.
With kind regards,

You mean like a kind of Arduino for MSX? So I can control some leds, send data to some IC's, read some pots and so?
Would be nice, at a nice price...

It is not a arduino card for the MSX. It is a MSX cartridge that you put in a MSX cartridge slot where you insert different modules can connect to.
As an output card or input card, an anolog to digital card, a digital to anolog card, an I ² C card, 32 output card, relay card, a real time clock card, a meteorological station card etc!!! Smile Frits9164

Uniface is an interface system development, with low-cost logical ICs and 34 pen cables, by the dutch Philips Computer Club (PTC). Interfaces for computers like MSX and P2000 and the IBM PC have been developed. It is a bus system, with addressable devices that can provide any kind of I/O, like digital and analog inputs and outputs.

If you can read dutch and are interested, all available information like articles from the PTC magazine (all magazines are for sale btw!) and the book can be found on my info pages.

I think I found 4 uniface/komeet pcb's and 1 msx cartridge.

Anyone know about this stuff, my reading of pcb designs is very poor. What kind of cable do I need? I read I can connect several prints on one cartridge??
