What is FujiNet?
FujiNet is a multi-peripheral emulator and WiFi network device for vintage computers. The first completed hardware was for Atari 8-Bit computers and development has begun for other systems with the goal of supporting as many as possible. What sets FujiNet apart from other WiFi devices is the new Network Device (the N device, or NDEV). The N device allows vintage computers that do not have enough processing power to handle TCP/IP connections talk to the modern internet over WiFi. Virtual adapters have been created for many protocols including: TCP, UDP, HTTP, FTP, TNFS, HTTPS (SSL/TLS), SSH, TELNET, WebDAV and JSON parser.
The FujiNet project is 100% completely open source, software and hardware. All code and hardware designs are available on our Github. Anyone is welcome to join us and add support for any system they want. We are more than willing to help where we can. The best way to get in touch with us is on our Discord server.
The #FujiNet project began as a simple WiFi modem for the Atari 8-Bit line of computers and quickly grew into a super peripheral emulating many devices including disk drives, printers, data cassette recorder, modem and the all new network device.
Apple II “FujiApple”
Support for the Apple II is in progress and prototype boards are out with developers. Currently, we are targeting the SmartPort bus and are experimenting with support for the Disk ][ interface for the “FujiApple”.
The ADAM and it’s ADAMNet serial bus was the second system completed and officially supported by FujiNet.
C64 support is in progress and targets the IEC bus. Much of the development support provided from the Meatloaf project.
