So do I. I think it's outrageous that a $3500 computer only has a minimal (Rx/Tx) serial port like my X1000. Oh, well.

Well, I need serial ports since some of my retro projects don't have USB capability.
And serial also makes a good debugging port.

Further, one 6809/6309 board I have uses a Phillips quad UART (you would not believe how much better that is than the old 6850/6551).

The P50X0 has serial ports, but even on systems that don't support RS-232, I can add it or convert USB ports.

What I haven't used in several years is a parallel interface.

Although for hacking and simple control projects they still have some uses.

I think I have a few printers with that interface, but most of my print out go to a networked HP M401.
The biggest problem I had with parallel was the limited length the cables would run.

Then again, USB doesn't like long cables either.

Which device for sale today accepts RS-232? Only POS receipt printers as I know of. Unusual or old hobby device maybe but just get USB or BT to serial converter.

@thread


both PowerProgress (in development) notebook and Raptor BlackBird and Talos II have been shown at

https://insidehpc.com/2020/01/video-open-and-high-performance-computing/

Opportunities that Amiga companies should take advantages of?

I'm sure that IBM may be happy to push forward the development of these platform...

@AmeegaGuy

serial port is popular debug port. Even if not for use to connect to devices commercially, it is a useful thing for hardware and firmware developers. T4240 and T2080 development systems are both default configured to be accessed from the serial port, then you can move up to other interfaces from there...

Serial is cheaper than most jtag kits, and easier to get into than jtag.

Most SoC have multiple serial ports built-in. Many other things have serial over USB built-in, like Arduinos, which show up on PC as COM ports for use with a serial terminal program.

Xbee boards connect to Arduino base using a serial port. Think embedded. You as a desktop computer user may not care. Embedded developers do very much.
