IEC Open Collectors

Posted on June 6, 2012 in Category: Blog - 0 Comments

Looks like the 1541 drives and other devices use open collectors to help drive the voltages on the IEC lines. Some devices do not implement this and I've heard that it can cause issues if there are multiple devices on the bus.

Thanks to JBev's help in figuring it out, I'll now be adding this feature so that it will behave well on laregly-populated buses.
