Many computer users find it necessary to connect peripheral devices to their computers. Since standard interfaces do not exist, users have been faced with the task of designing and building the interface themselves.

PET Interfacing gives you a better idea of how specialized interfaces can be build and used with the PET computer. The three types of interfacing that are covered in this book are the user port, the memory expansion port, and the IEEE 488 port. Each of these ports has a specific use, and each is covered in detail. This is really a how-to-do-it book with many experiments for you to perform to learn more about interfacing the PET computer and to learn more about control signals.

The book opens with an introduction to PET microprocessor hardware and guides you through the construction of a simple breadboarding circuit. This is followed by inter-face experiments with the user port, interfacing the PET by using the memory expansion port, some interfacing hints and kinks, and interfacing the PET with the IEEE 488 port. The book concludes with three appendices that contain flow charts, program listings for a general-purpose listener/talker, and sources of supply for electronic parts. 

This book is directed to the PET user who wants to expand his or her system by using the user port, memory expansion port, and/or the IEEE 488 port.
