Custom Omega2 DB25 RS232 "Dongle" (Pictures)
As a followup to my Commodore 64 Omega2 Interface, I've designed a small and simple custom board that allows the Omega to be connected to any "retro" computer that has a DB25 RS232 port.
As you can see, it works beautifully on a WYSE terminal in VT100 mode!
The hardest part was waiting 6 weeks for the super-rare 2mm headers to arrive from China
I also got it working on a Tandy m100, at a blazing 300 baud!
At the Vintage Computer Festival Midwest last weekend, I also got to test it on a serial terminal printer, which worked great!
Woww. Do u have this project in hackster io , or somewhere (Like a tutorial) ?

@leo-moura No, this post is that tutorial
There's really not too much to it. I posted the Fritzing board design files though, enjoy:

I have a similar journey ahead of me.
got the max232 chip setup . but needing the proper ncurses term library to work
Any clue on getting other terminals to work with it or profiles or is it all strictly vt100 compatibles
I require the hz1552 variant (interfacing a Hazeltine Esprit )
