The Commodore 1650 AUTOMODEM #Commodore #VintageComputing @Pagetable
The Commodore 1650, also known as the “AUTOMODEM”, is Commodore’s first full modem directly connected to the phone line. It supports pulse dialing in software and 300 baud duplex connections.
The core component is the Motorola MC14412 modem chip at the bottom center. On the front, there is the VIC-20/C64 user port connector and an activity LED.
The design of the AUTOMODEM is basically the same as its predecessor’s, with the extra circuitry added to allow it work with the phone line directly instead of acting as the handset of an existing telephone.
