The PETdisk is a simple storage device for the Commodore PET series of computers. PETdisk uses a microSD card for mass storage and uses the PET’s IEEE-488 port. Documentation, schematics, and source code will be provided here. Build your own from scratch, or order a PETdisk in kit form.
The PETdisk is available as a kit, or fully assembled.
Assembled and tested PETdisks are available for $55 USD. These units are tested with my PET 2001 or 8032 before I send them out the door.
PETdisk kits are also available for $30. This includes the PETdisk printed circuit board along with all components, including a programmed ATMega168 microcontroller with the PETdisk firmware. Assembly generally takes under an hour, and requires some basic tools (soldering iron, utility knife). If you have issues with the assembly, I’ll try to help debug it. If problems persist you can send it back to me and I’ll attempt to analyze/repair it for you, but you would pay for the round-trip shipping in that case.
The PETdisk has a bootloader which updates its firmware directly from a file on the SD card, so when future updates are available you can easily get the latest features.
