Here you'll find details on what to order for your ImpoSTer setup.
Please read the disclaimer below. Ensure you understand the implications of plugging the device into your system.

The ImpoSTer adapter is a keyboard/mouse emulator for the Atari ST/STE/MegaST/MegaSTE/TT and Falcon computers. It plugs into the keyboard port of the Atari and has a passthrough port for attaching the original keyboard. The ImpoSTer also features two DB9 joystick ports, with port0 being able to use both joystick and original Atari mice. It also has two USB ports for keyboard/mouse and USB hubs.
The ImpoSTer also can attach to a PC and allow an Atari Keyboard/Mouse/Joysticks to be used on a PC. In this mode the Atari computer connection is disabled, and the side mini-USB port is used to plug into the PC.
The mini-USB port by default is used for power. A jumper on the ImpoSTer can be added so that the Atari can power the ImpoSTer, but attention should be paid to the current draw that is consumed by the USB devices.
NOTE: The mini-USB port is shared with the top most USB-A port. If you are powering the device from the mini-USB port, ensure that only power is provided, and not a data connection as this can conflict with the top USB-A port.
The software for the ImpoSTer is still UNDER DEVELOPMENT, so any problems please contact me for future firmware updates.
Any questions, please contact me.
NOTE: If there are any questions on the operation of the board, please use the Atari Forum so others can benefit from the answers. Thanks !!
