  • TX Data is the value received by the serial port.
  • Net Input is the value read from the Sinclair Network port.
  • Bit 0 of port 0x7f is output to the serial port if Comms Data is set, or to the network port if Comms Data is reset.
  • DTR signals that the remote station wishes to send data, CTS signals that the Spectrum wishes to send data
  • Wait is used for network synchronisation.
  • When Erase is reset the tape is erased and data is written, when set data is read.
  • R/W instructs the microdrive to read or write. When R/W is set the microdrive runs, when reset it stops
  • Comms Data is the value to be shifted into the microdrive select flip-flop chain.
  • Comms Clock shifts the microdrive select bit along the chain.
  • Write Protect is raised when a writeable cartridge is present in the selected microdrive.
  • Gap and Sync are used to locate the correct block of data on the microdrive.
