The Pi1541 project is an open source real-time, cycle exact, Commodore 1541 disk drive emulator that can run on a Raspberry Pi 3B (or 3B+).

The project page for this endeavor can be found here: Pi1541 Project Page

The Pi1541, through the implementation of a software/hardware Raspberry Pi solution is designed to offer an SD solution for using D64, G64, NIB and NBZ Commodore disk images on real Commodore 8 bit computers such as:

Commodore 64
Commodore 128
Commodore Vic-20
Commodore 16
Commodore +4

Please visit the project link noted above for complete details on the software that drives this open source project.  We encourage you to support the developer/brain child of this fabulous project.

A portion of the proceeds of Pi1541 sales from will be routed back to the original developer.  So, consider part of the purchase price of this item a donation to the great work of the Pi1541 developer.

(Coming soon) Downloadable SD card images available through the "Download" tab do not contain ROM files (ie: drive ROMS or JiffyDOS roms).  Drive roms need to be obtained yourself.  JiffyDos is a highly recommended drive rom that can be used, and can be purchased from here for a nominal charge: JiffyDOS.

It should further be noted that SD images found here will not be the most current software version.  Please download and apply the latest version to your SD image to enjoy the most current code.

About this item:

This product provides you with one bare board for the compatible raspberry pi hat for the Pi1541.  We have adopted this board as the definitive open source board for this project.  This item is design for those who would like to source the components needed to construct their "hat" on their own.  It's designed for people with soldering skills possessing the desire to build something themselves.

For those interested in a complete board, please select this product :

If you are just purchasing this item alone, rest assured, a refund will be coming back to you based on the rates below.  All I need to do is cover the cost of the bubble envelope and stamp(s) to your destination. For the protection of the board, it will be shipped to you in a bubble envelope (oversize letter). 

For this item purchased alone...
Oversize letter rates (including mailer):

Canada : $1.80 USD
USA : $2.95 USD
International : $5.95 USD

Cheaper rates for this board alone can be provided through lettermail, but that affords the board less protection.

If you're purchasing this with other products, then the shipping will apply in full.
