Universal Serial Interface for Amstrad CPC (a.k.a USIfAC)

  Amstrad CPC Serial interface is a universal serial port for Amstrad CPC 464/664/6128 models, based on the 8bit PIC 16F1579@32Mhz microcontroller.
It can buffer up to 920 bytes of received data, and can achieve speeds up to 576000bps, using a usb2serial direct cable adapter, or 460800bps using a Bluetooth or Wifi Module. It is also equipped with a reset button and a Pause switch:




You can use it with:
- A very cheap  USB2serial cable adapter for direct connection
-  A pair of HC-05 Bluetooth modules for wireless connection 
- A WiFi module,(an ESP-07 or an ESP-01 along with a 5V adapter)  for wireless connection through router/internet:

I've also developed a PC utility:




It offers five functions:

- Terminal: A terminal for direct communication through serial/Bluetooth or Wifi modules.
- File Copy to CPC: A File Copy utility from PC directly to Amstrad CPC disk.
- File Copy From CPC: A file Copy utility from Amstrad CPC disk to PC.
- Image Copy to CPC: A dsk image copy utility from PC to Amstrad CPC disks.
- Direct Load: A method for Loading games/programs Directly from PC

You can find everything you will need, to make and/or use one here

It contains:
-The circuit diagram,
-The gerber files for the pcb,
-The bill of materials,
-The Pic 16F1579 microcontroller Hex file (you will need a pickit2/3 in order to flash it into PIC 16F1579),
-Amstrad’s utility dsk image disk (you can transfer it to a real disk with CPCDISKXP using an ide or a usb 3.5" floppy Drive),
-The PC utility program,along with CPCLOADER (for easy extracting dsk images) and a folder including the utility disk files,for direct loading from PC using "Direct Load" function,
-The User's Guide.

And here ,is a list of 130+ verified games that work with direct load function (many more would probably work but not tested yet)
