Connect your IBM 3270 coax terminal to your PC with this USB interface!
Using the open-source oec controller software running on your PC, instead of a hard-to-find IBM 3174, you can connect to TN3270 and VT100 hosts around the world from the comfort of your own home.
This interface is only compatible with CUT-type 3270 terminals. Please contact me if you are unsure if your terminal is supported, and I'll try and help.
The interface is compatible with the open-source pycoax library and oec controller software. See those respective projects for additional information.
The interface firmware is designed to act as a controller and not emulate a terminal.
The interface comes fully assembled, tested, and ready to use.

I wanted to connect a real IBM terminal to the Hercules emulator. Unfortunately, it's hard to find the necessary IBM 3174 terminal controller with Ethernet or Token Ring interface and a version of the software that supports TCP/IP. Also, they are large, noisy, and difficult to keep running.
So, I decided to build my own. You can read more about this project's background in my Building an IBM 3270 terminal controller article.
It is a unique, open-source, and open-hardware 3270 interface!
