1.2B MFM-Disk Emulator Status and development work


August 2017
This project is not being further developed, mainly because the BeMicro-CV board is no longer available. There is
also a lack of time and the complexity of the project with "on the flight" MFM DE / EN-coding.

Alternatively, there is a solution with different concept, clever
implemented : https://www.pdp8.net/mfm/mfm.shtml


eBeMicro-CV-based Disk Emulator
T
he following pictures are showing the prototype design of MFM disk Emulator.
This new design allows not only the simulation of a MFM disk. In the Clone-Mode, a (partially) functioning disk can be stored on the SD card. Since the Micro-CV board has 125 MB memory available and also enough onboard memory, drives about 100MB can be supported. The optional WLAN interface replaces the serial interface and also the SD card.
