Debugging (with MS Codeview, Turbo Debugger, etc.) can be carried out easily on a host PC. The taskit PIF bus can be attached to the host PC with an interface card in order to test access to PIF extensions from the development PC.
Simple connection to a host PC or network
The serial interface provides the 386EX-Cards DOS-stardard input and output. Any terminal program, e.g. VTERM, can enable for smooth communication with the development PC.
Using simple DOS "copy" commands, you can copy files from the development PC to the 386EX-Cards Flash disk or RAM disk. Alternatively, with some models you can copy your data to a storage volume attached to the IDE interface.
The optional Ethernet connection offers further possibilities for straightforward data transfer; you can integrate the 386EX-Card III into a network.
