At a very young age, I learned the value of an adapter. It’s very rare that electronics easily connect to one another, doubly so when you’re working with devices from two different eras.
To this point, if you are someone who has a vintage BBC Microcomputer around, you know that its RS423 port can be cumbersome if you’re trying to interface with a modern PC.
This capable adapter lets you connect your BBC Micro’s RS423 port to a PC USB port. This allows you to transfer files from your PC to the microcomputer and vice versa at modern speeds.
It comes with a 500mm cable that leads to a 5-pin “domino” DIN plug for the BBC Micro. The other side is a mini-USB socket to receive a standard USB cable from the PC.
It also works with the full range of speeds available on the RS423 port, including 19200 baud. You can find the full manual online in PDF form as well.
