*The VT100 emulator allows you to connect a VGA monitor and PS2 keyboard and will act like a serial terminal.

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.

Also, please be aware that your country or municipality may charge taxes or import fees. As the recipient, you are responsible for those charges. I have no way to know what those charges may be.

Please check shipping charges in your cart before checkout. Unfortunately the Pro kit exceeds the weight allowable for First Class parcel shipping, and may increase international shipping costs greatly. Compare shipping costs between the Standard and Pro kit before ordering.

*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.
