Raspberry Pi floppy controller board

smbakeryt made a floppy controller for his Raspberry Pi:

If there’s one criticism I hear more often than any other about the pi, it’s “I wish my Raspberry Pi had a floppy drive“. It’s really shocking that the pi doesn’t have the ubiquitous 34-pin floppy header that we all know and love. How else are you supposed to interface your Tandon TM100-2A or your Teac FD-55BR or even, for you cutting edge folks, your Sony MFP290 3.5” high density drive?
So I set along to create this much needed had, the missing link between the raspberry pi and the floppy disk drive.
