RS232 Smart Media Drive Module

Use a single I/O pin of a TICkit processor or Parallax STAMP to interface to this module. Instantly open up 64 or 128 megabytes of non-volatile storage to your applications. Commands and data transfer takes place over a single signal wire using Protean's modified RS232  called "mono-wire". Data transfer takes place at 9600 baud, N81, inverted and is gated by the host processor to allow even slower interpreters to take advantage of the huge storage capability of Smart Media.


  • Utilizes 3.3v Smart Media in sizes of 16Meg to 256meg.
  • Requires only one processor pin for bi-directional interface
  • Fbasic Source code is supplied to allow the user to customize the interface or take advantage of additional on-board resources.
  • Drives are formatted like streaming tape drives allowing multiple named streams. DOS format is NOT supported at this time.
  • 128Kbyte Dram on board for buffering.
  • power and data can be supplied through a single 10 pin header connector
  • 2 channel A/D and D/A hardware on board for a potential implementation of audio recording and playback.
  • All timing issues are handled internally. Commands are send and forget type.
