Can anyone identify this card? [message #282404] Wed, 28 January 2015 21:20 Go to next message

Hi Folks,


Can someone help me identify this card before I get tempted to plug it in and
make a mess of things? I have had it lying around for quite some time and
couldn't find anything of it via googling for the card details.

It's an Apple card (made by Apple Computer in 1983/4). It simply reads 'APPLE II
Interface' on it. The card model number is 028-5006-B and contains a D2716-1
chip on it (341-0299-B) which is copyright Apple 1984.

Could this be an Apple II Serial Interface Card? If so how can I tell if it is
the P8 or the P8A ROM version. What is the maximum baud of the card and will it
be supported by Spectrum IIGS for serial communications to a Linux box?

Thanks in advance,

ProFile interface card - and the coveted 10MB ROM version, too.
