ADE Mini

$120.00$130.00

The Coleco ADAM ADE Mini (ADEM) drive emulator is designed for the user who doesn’t require the full features of the ADE or ADE Pro with LCD and button interface. It is a great option for gaming and just about anything else with few limitations. The ADEM relies on using the fast and powerful ADE Commander boot disk software interface using the SD Command structure to remotely control the ADEM from the ADAM itself. Limit two per customer.

Features:

  • Unit is powered directly from ADAMnet.
  • Small 3″ x 1.5″ x “.75” size.
  • Emulates up to four disk drives at once and can be configured to enable/disable any drive combination to allow use with a physical disk drive at the same time.
  • Compatible with floppy disk images (.dsk), most digital data pack images (.ddp), Colecovision cartridge ROM (.rom or col) images 32K in size or smaller.
  • Able to store 300 images/directories per directory.
  • All ADE variants support special SD command codes that allow the ADE to auto boot when a boot.dsk image is present and also provides a number of additional functions to help manage your images on the SD card. Be sure to download ADE Commander when you acquire your Internal ADE Pro. More information can be found at https://github.com/Kalidomra/ADE-Commander.
  • Using the ADEM with a physical Drive 2 connected will require an ADAMnet (RJ12) splitter to power the ADEM. This is because a physical drive doesn’t pass the power through to the output connector to supply the ADEM. This is offered as an optional accessory item as many people do not use physical drives and would rather pass the savings on to buyers that don’t require it.
  • Multi-disk swap support for images. This feature requires that all images in the set must have the same name except for the file extension. Multi-disk support allows up to four images (.dsk,.ds2,.ds3,.ds4) and can be selected by pressing the swap (gray) button on top of the ADEM. Pushing the button from one to four times will mount the disk in that set to the corresponding .dsk-.ds4 image. Each button press will flash the light to verify the button was pressed. After inactivity from the final button press, the ADEM will acknowledge the swap was made by a single flash indicating it is now safe to proceed using the next image.
  • Includes the drive and 2.5’ ADAMnet cable.

Options:

  • ADAMnet (RJ12) splitter for sharing the ADAMnet port with a physical disk drive (includes 6” ADAMnet cable)

Documentation:

Sean Myers’s willingness to share his ADE project code for all to enjoy made this project possible. More specifics on the ADE project in general can be found on Sean’s GitHub page at https://github.com/Kalidomra/AdamNet-Drive-Emulator.
