#FujiNet is a network adapter that attaches to the SIO (Peripheral) port of an Atari 8-bit computer system to a WiFi network; however, it has become an all-encompassing SIO peripheral emulator. The current hardware is a design based on the ESP32-WROVER module and contains a custom 3D printed SIO Plug and Receptacle, allowing users to attach real SIO devices simultaneously with #FujiNet.
The #FujiNet device provides the following services:
|Loads CAS images.||Under Development|
|Load floppy disk images from onboard MicroSD or networked TNFS server. Supports ATR, ATX, and XEX formats.||Currently Working|
|850 Modem emulation, supports Type 1 Poll to load handler. Works with existing communications programs such as Ice-T, BobTerm, AMODEM, PLATOTERM, and BBS servers.||Currently Working|
|Printer output saved to PDF files downloadable from the device. Available Printers: 820, 822, 825, 1020, 1025, 1027, 1029, Espon 80, Okimate 10, HTML for copy/paste, GRANTIC Screen Printer. Example 822 Printouts (PDF): Text & Graphics.||Currently Working|

Currently, the documentation is under development, but please feel free to check out the #FujiNet project Wiki page for the latest information on using the #FujiNet device.
The device will ship with the latest release of the firmware, however, the firmware is being updated continually by the #FujiNet team, and they have provided a simple to use tool to update the #FujiNet firmware any time.
Firmware for FujiNet can be flashed using the easy cross-platform flash program. Download the program for your operating system below:
You may also need to install the CP210x USB to UART driver which is available from https://www.silabs.com/products/development-tools/software/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers
Connect the #FujiNet to your computer with a MicroUSB cable. Run the flash program with elevated privileges (as administrator or root user) so that it may access the serial port. Select the correct serial port for your FujiNet then click the Flash ESP button. The latest firmware is automatically downloaded directly from the FujiNet.online web server and installed on the #FujiNet device. The log window will display the flashing progress.
If you are in Europe and want to save some shipping you are welcome to order your #FujiNet device from Poland.
