Say Hello to the Model C

The new Floppy Emu Model C introduces an eye-catching 1.3-inch 128×64 OLED display, with crisp text and amazing contrast. Fonts are more detailed, and the OLED shows eight lines of text for better context when scrolling through a long list of filenames. The new display is a real treat for the eyes.

Model C also features a push-pull micro-SD card holder, for improved durability. This is the same style of SD card holder found in most mobile phones.

The same great disk emulation features from earlier models are also supported in the Model C. It’s directly compatible with the entire Apple II line, emulating 5 1/4 inch disks, 3 1/2 inch disks, or Smartport hard disks all without the need for a separate adapter. Of course classic Macintosh and Lisa disk emulation is supported too. Model C reads and writes emulated 140K, 400K, 800K, or 1.4MB floppy disk images, or hard disk images up to 2GB, if supported by your Apple computer.

Your Floppy Emu board comes fully assembled and tested, and ready to use. It includes a 3 foot 20-pin ribbon cable for connecting to your computer, and a DB-19 adapter that mates with the 19-pin external disk port found on most vintage Apple machines. If necessary, this adapter can be removed and the cable can be connected to an internal disk header on the computer’s logic board or disk controller.
