[Coco] Telepak RS232 Pak

6551 with the MAX232 chip for the level translation.

CC3, no problem.

Not sure about speed, I am sure it will fly. I have been 16550 for a long time.

This is just an extra.

Naming convention changed in the last NitrOS-9. Should be 6551 something. Should be REALLY obvious what the module is.

Not in front of my NOS machine now.

Happy New Year!

Does it work in a cc3?  Mmmm, that's probably moot anyway as most would run it 
in an MPI anyway, solving the 12 volt problem.

Can it do more than the deluxe 232 packs default 9600?  And what would one use 
for a driver in that case with recent Nitros9?
