This terminal is nothing original, but I found a use for my TI99/4A retro keyboard controller and with Propeller chip being so easy as an I/O controller, I am building a simple character terminal app. to control my MKHBC-8-Rx homebrew computer.
Built with Arduino Nano, I2C LCD and 2 buttons, step motor, re-purposed battery operated fish tank feeder from Walmart and a relay for light on/off function. It is used on a real fish tank at my home for more than a year now.
This is TI99/4A matrix keyboard with AT89S52 micro as a controller, serial interface similar to PS/2 (but simpler protocol) with Data and Clock lines. Easy to connect to Parallax Propeller or other micros.
This is still in progress. A MOS 6502 based 8-bit generic purpose microcomputer. Currently controlled with serial terminal, but being an expandable architecture I am adding peripherals as I go. Currently: RS-232, Banked RAM, RTC, MOS 6502 @2 MHz
LED Matrix Text Messaging/Prompter controller. Based on AT89S52 (8051 compatible) built with chained LED matrix displays with individual controllers/shift registers, RS-232 as controlling interface and internal scripting engine and storage.
