Ask Mark at www.cloud9tech.com, thats his product. He may even have a

With its own power supply and slot selection logic, yes. As far as
the rs-232 stuff, its not that hard to take an old DC-300 modem pack,
and turn it into a full fledged rs-232 pack if its in an MPI which
will furnish the +-12 power it needs. And its not that hard to
piggyback a second ACIA addressed at the adjacent 4 byte wide block
to get two rs-232 ports up and running. I did that with an old 1200
baud logitech seriel mouse on the second port, best mouse ever for a
coco, but that needs a patched cc3io module to pick up the mouse
