Is there any Emulator supporting VDrive (vinculum) emulation?

Post by Paul » Sat Dec 28, 2019 9:58 am

Or maybe a real hardware vdrive connected to a PC?
Anybody thought of this already?
I am asking for debugging reasons.....

Kind regards
Paul
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

Set the jumper on VDRIVE2 to enable the serial mode (not the SPI mode) and use a converter from 5V TTL level (at VDRIVE2) to RS232 levels at PC. Then use a real COM port (or USB-adapter for a virtual COM port) to talk to VDRIVE2 (using a terminal emulator program on the PC).

Sorry, that's not what I was looking for.
I'm searching an emulator that uses a real vdrive or an emulation of it on a pc.
