Today my nanoPEB finally arrived. Looks so cool and futuristic. The nanoPEB is an unofficial hardware expansion. I got mine from Jaime Malilong, I don't know yet if he is building this piece of hardware himself.
A nanoPEB is basically a nano (size) Peripherical Expansion Box for the TI-99/4A. It is hookep up on the side of the console, also called Sideport (Speech Synthesizer, Flex Cable,..)
It features a 32kb Memory Expansion, a serial RS-232 interface, an emulated disc controller with 3 emulated disk drives. You can store your disk image collection on the compact flash card, and mount a disk image very easy to the disk drive of your choice.
The wonderful part about all this: every part of it a 100% compatible replacement for the original hardware.
