FelinæPurr (you can also write it FelinaePurr if your keyboard does not allow you to make that nice character) is a COMLynx compatible device. The COMLynx is the name of the Atari Lynx cable to connect two Lynx together. As the Lynx use RS232 protocol for that connector, it's also the name of devices that allow to connect your Lynx with your computer.
The particularity of the COMLynx is that it's completely half-duplex as the 2.5 jack used mix with RxD and TxD signal on the same ring:
This device can also be used for devices using the same approach for transmitting RS232 signal (yes there are many of them)
I'm currently going to sell the USB-A male version only, but if there is demand I will produce some microUSB B version, so if your prefer this version, send me a message.
I make this page visible to have a clear view on the demand for that device so I could prepare accordingly the production. Please put yourself in the wishlist if you are interested by that product!
I designed a simple but nice 3D printed case. Please note that I print them on demand, so it may delay the order by a few days, the time to print it.
I propose the case in all black (you will not see the LEDs) or in bottom black and front clear where the LED can shine through.
I will add picture of the case ASAP
FelinæPurr is made around a FTDI FT232RL chip which is basically a USB to Serial adapter. It have some nice feature like the ability to blink LEDs when there are some Tx/Rx activity, which FelinæPurr use!
As this device is mainly intended for Atari Lynx and to make it chat with your computer, I found that name perfectly fitting it's role!
And why the æ instead of ae? Because æ or Æ it's way cooler than plain ae / AE isn't it?
Also it slightly change the pronunciation. The correct one is roughly: fɛliːnɑːɛ pɜː using IPA for English
