I still have the PCTD16. Yeah, you're right--it's got a bunch of
PALs (16L8) but no FPGA like the PCTD3 (that needs to have firmware
downloaded from the host and is slow as molasses anyway).
I'd love to see a copy of the API software for the PCTD16, alone with
whatever docs you have. Chi is absolutely no help on this stuff.
I'm even willing to reverse-engineer the software and work up a x386
driver for Linux or (gasp!) even Windoze XP/2K. I've already made up
a cable adapter with 2 50-pin male ribbon headers on a small board
attached to the 68-pin D-sub, so I'm ready to go.
