Micro Power 2000

The Micro Power 2000 has a internal power supply, two diskette stations with each one read / write head and a motherboard. On the motherboard you will find RAM and ROM memory and a MOS 6509 processor. The Micro Power 2000 is a smart device, reading and writing works independent of the connected computer.
This is a strange disk drive. It has no text or markings on it. For years I had no info on this disk drive. But another Commodore fan called Steve send me pictures of his MSD-2 disk drive. The PCB inside is very similar to this disk drive. But there are differences:
The voltage regulators are on a separate PCB.
Position of the connectors.
All the IC's are in sockets.
There is no text on the PCB.
