Thread: ISA Multi-IO Board - Preferred Connectors

    Not sure I saw it mentioned, but I'm guessing some people would prefer to have a Joystick port, as most XT games can use them, and not as many people have a soundcard in their XT. I myself would find 9-pin serial and LPT ports useful but a lot of systems with limited ISA slots tend to have at least one of those built in, however I dont think I've EVER seen an XT clone with a built-in game port. Although it may be a bold assumption to think that people that would be interested in such a card would also be interested in gaming....I myself use my XTs for gaming maybe only 10% of the time...

    Just a thought!

    Used a supercap in my first universal card - kept RTC for a few days (maybe just for one - don’t remember exactly), so moved to 2032.

    P.S. Some offtopic - do you mind making a version (gerber files) of your 16-bit ISA backplane with 24 pins ATX power connector instead of the existing 20 pins one ?

    If it is so easy, please provide/create the needed software for these old 8-bitters.

    Some have already done SNTP applications for 8-bit systems. For example, see https://macgui.com/kb/article/764

    For a PC card like this section indicates, there is http://www.brutman.com/mTCP/mTCP_Sntp.html

    A RTC would be good, Maybe have a battery header instead of a CR2032 on board so one can use a couple of AA type batteries off board if space is an issue.
