Other unofficial cables for TI:

Old version of parallel cable

Modified old version of parallel cable (=S5 link)

Parallel cable version fot Atari ST, Falcon, TT

Serial Link (=$4 link)

PICLink

Old version of PICLink

 

Old version of parallel cable (=$5link)

Old version of parallel cable

Parts:

2 1N4148 diodes
2 1kΩ resistors
1 2.5mm female stereo jack
1 DB25 male plug
1 DB25 hood
2 meters of 2 wire shielded cable

Order one to me for $10CDN (or $7US, 8), software included for all compatible platforms Yeah, I need to maintain the site...Anyway, concerning name, it's $5US, not $5CDN, so price is very reasonable...

Serial Cable (=$4 Link)

Originally intended to use with TI 82 and TI 85, it is theoretically compatible with TI's software and the 83+. I'm waiting for your emails to confirm it works.
Order one to me for $10CDN (or $7US, 8), softwares included.
