What is it?
Atari floppy drive emulator running on Raspberry Pi Zero W for real 8-bit Atari 800XL/65XE/130XE computers.
What does it do?
It presents itself to 8-bit Atari as a floppy drive, so computer can load programs from floppy images (*.ATR files).
Components required to build it:
- Raspberry Pi Zero W (or faster 3+) and power supply
- Micro SD card (8 GB or larger)
- 4-channel bidirectional level shifter
- Rectifier diode
- Atari SIO connector (or connector pins from DB 25 female connector)
Please refer to the INSTALL file. It describes all steps necessary to install AtariServer on Raspberry Pi.
This project combines atariserver by Hias with embedded web server (Mongoose) to create virtual floppy drive for Atari. To select floppy images users can use their smartphone or tablet.
