USB floppy controller for Amiga disks

This is a USB floppy disk controller, for reading and writing amiga disks. In conjunction with the accompanying amigafloppy program, it allows archiving amiga disks as ADF disk images, or writing ADF disk images back to disks, to use with an Amiga computer.

The firmware for this controller is based on the ArduinoFloppyDiskReader project by Rob Smith (https://github.com/RobSmithDev/ArduinoFloppyDiskReader), converted to run on standalone AVR hardware (as opposed to an arduino) by John Tsiombikas.

The new AVR hardware is designed to be compatible with the original host software, so you may use the AmigaFloppyReader or AmigaFloppyReaderWin programs from Rob's project, if you prefer.

Directory structure:

  • hw - hardware: kicad files and pdf schematics.
  • fw - firmware for the AVR microcontroller.
  • amigafloppy - host program for reading/writing ADF images.

Note: The amigafloppy host program is not completed yet. And it's not a high priority, since Rob's original .NET programs seem to work fine with wine on GNU/Linux. I'd like to complete it at some stage, but I can't say when that will happen. Contributions are of course welcome, but please coordinate with me first. Until then, please use AmigaFloppyReader or AmigaFloppyReaderWin.
