It's not period to the MiniMINC, but I have a stick-of-gum-sized
multi-channel analog input device with a DE-9 on one end. ISTR it has
four analog channels and it spits out readings over a 9600-N-1
connection. It was a freebie for answering a post card ad some years
I'll pull it off the shelf and post the part number. Who knows? They
might have some modern (less than 10-year-old) descendant product.
