The US Doubler was made by ICD, and it allows a 1050 disk drive to operate in
true double density (180K per disk instead of the usual 128K).  And, when
used with Spartados, it has Ultraspeed (that's what the US stands for), which
transfers data between the computer and disk drive at 2 or 3 times faster
than a standard 1050.
