How about trades? Like say a GMX 3-Port Intelligent Serial Card for an
HDISK controller with ROM. =:vD Or something along those lines.
Something I am toying with is maybe you making (me haking) a version of your
SSP with one RS-232 DB9 or DB25 and replacing one set of the RS-232 line
drivers and the other DB connector with a USB to UART chip and USB B Type
connector, so that people with no serial ports can use the adapter to
connect to a modern computer.
For instance the USB to UART chips located at
https://www.silabs.com/products/interface/usbtouart/Pages/default.aspx ( I
just got a free sample of the CP2102 and the CP2103 chips via Fedex this
week). The CP2102 chip cost is just $3.66 for 1+, $3.15 for 25+, $2.78 for
50+ and $2.57 for 100+. But I warn you it is a small QFN 5mm x 5mm ship
with a .5mm pitch for the pins. Just a thought!
