We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Acorn AKA10 with AKA15 MIDI upgrade

The AKA10 BBC I/O podule was one of the first podules launched by Acorn when the Archimedes was launched in 1987. It provides additional ports which allowed many BBC Micro peripherals to be used with the Archimedes. The ports are: User port, 1MHz Bus and Analogue. There was an upgrade to add MIDI functionality (but I haven't seen one yet). The podule is also unusual as one of the few double/full width podules produced.

The AKA10 BBC I/O podule is documented in the I/O Podule Guide .

The Acorn AKA15 MIDI Upgrade is an upgrade to the Acorn AKA10 I/O podule . It consists of some additional ICs and the MIDI IN & OUT sockets and the ribbon connectors to the board.

The MIDI User Guide is also with this board.

Date : 1989

Manufacturer : Acorn

Physical Description : Expansion board. MIDI User Guide Book
