Features:

  • IDE Controller – Mini IDE to support compact flash and SD to IDE adapters
  • 8MB Fast RAM
  • Compact All-in-One design
  • 4 Layer Board
  • Hand Solderable 1206 component sizes
  • Support for ATF1508 / ATF1504 TQFP100 CPLD’s
  • Tag Connect JTAG for easy Firmware loading

Some things to note:

  • To boot via IDE, you’ll need to either patch your Kickstart ROM or use a Kickstart ROM that has the required SCSI drivers such as Kickstart 3.1
  • 2 points at the expansion port will need to be soldered /OVR and /INT2. Documentation is available below
  • Due to the limited I/O on the ATF1504, CFGIN / CFGOUT is not implemented

This project was inspired by Oleg Mishin. You can find the original project here.

  1. OSHW

    Where can I get the source files for this hardware?
    The original hardware was GPL 3.0 so this modified version should be covered by the same principles.

    Thanks!
    Are the schematics available somewhere too?
