I don't think so. It was designed for the Amigo computer, AKA HP-300,
which is why it's called Amigo protocol.
IIRC, the HP-300 didn't even *have* floppy drives. It had an internal
hard drive, and I think it was possible to add more externally.
The Computer History Museum recently got an Amigo, and Ken Sumrall,
Stan Sieler, and I would like to run it someday. Anybody got docs
(beyond what's already on bitsavers) or software?
