This device ships flashed with FlashFloppy firmware by Keir Fraser:



Attention: does not includes the power supply nor the ribbon cable.


    The F1-SD is basically a Gotek floppy disk emulator clone. Its fully compatible with FlashFloppy firmware. Besides the regular USB connexion for memory sticks, the F1-SD integrates a microSD slot allowing disk images to be mounted directly from a microSD card. 

    It can be connected to a host through a standard 32 pin floppy ribbon cable and Its compatible virtually with any computer with a floppy disk interface (some might require a custom ribbon cable to be made). 

    It can be powered by the standard 4 pin ATX floppy power connector but also with a regular 5v DC power supply. It includes a 16x2 LCD screen display and a internal buzzer to simulate the disk activity noise.
