NOTE: v1.3 uses 74LS07 ICs to separate FujiNet from the SIO bus when turned off and has better compatibility with other SIO devices (high speed disk drives, etc).
#FujiNet is the latest peripheral in development for Atari 8 Bit computers. Originally intended to be a network adapter, it has become an all encompassing SIO peripheral emulator. The software is still a work in progress, but it currently emulates many Atari peripherals (see the list here).
FujiNet is designed with a custom SIO plug which is intended to connect directly into any Atari 8 Bit computer and also has a custom SIO receptacle on the back for connecting to other “real” Atari peripherals. There is a MicroSD socket on the right side for storing disk images, printer PDF files and configuration information (wifi credentials, disk drive config, etc). Three buttons are easily accessible on the top providing various functions. Three LED’s on the front provide the following status: WHITE Left (wifi connected), BLUE Middle (SIO2BT Mode), ORANGE Right (SIO activity).
On the left side there is an ON/OFF slide switch (Up is on, Down is off). The MicroUSB port above the power switch can be used to power the FujiNet as well as update it’s firmware. FujiNet can also be powered directly from the Atari through the SIO connector without the need for MicroUSB (except on the Atari 400 or 800).
