This is an Arduino shield, a circuit that is plugged on top of an Arduino microcontroller board, that can read Newton MessagePad 2x00 ROM boards. The content of the ROM is then transfered to a hos computer via USB cable.

If I ever get a Flash based ROM board to run, this device will also help me to get the initial programming into the Flash ROMs for expreimentation.

Mar 15 2017: new PCBs and connectors are in!

I should have time to solder a hand full of those in the next two weeks. The PCB is developed as a shield for the Arduino 2560 Mega. Only MP2x00 ROM boards are supported. No eMate boards!
