Altair 8800 Emulator Kit – Assembled & Tested


I am no longer building Altair-Duinos for sale on my website. I have a small amount left over, and when they’re gone, that’s all that will be available. You will still be able to buy the kits here, but this may be your last chance for a fully assembled unit.

These kits are some of my best work so far. They are in a much sturdier bamboo box that is deeper and painted “Altair blue”.

Out of stock



An assembled and tested Altair-Duino with limited availability:

  1. Thicker and sturdier bamboo box
  2. Painted “Altair blue”
  3. Rear ports include DB9 RS232, micro SD card, audio jack, power jack
  4. Includes a 256mb SD card with many disk images including Altair DOS, Altair BASIC, CP/M, and more

Includes a Bluetooth* serial module (connect to a terminal program like PuTTY or TeraTerm for Windows, or CoolTerm for Mac OS.)

The MAX3232 Serial Module provides a DB9 serial connection and a laser cut panel for the back of your Altair-Duino that mounts your DB9, power jack, and audio jack.

David Hansel has also made some awesome updates to the software that will enable you to upload and save software to the SD card, emulate a 5MB hard drive, support multiple serial ports, emulate an Intel 8080 or Zilog Z80 CPU and more!

International Customers (outside the USA):
By default his kit includes a 9 volt power adapter made to connect to a Type A electrical socket (used in the USA, Canada, Mexico & Japan). You can choose to receive a 9 volt EU power adapter. If you want to use another power adapter, make sure it has a 5.5×2.1mm plug and provides 9v-12v at 1 amp. You can also power the Altair-Duino from a USB port.

*Please note: due to licensing issues the Bluetooth module will not connect to iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod) but will connect to Mac and Windows computers.
