For Sale: IDE Podules - Nov 2018

Post by IanS » Wed Nov 28, 2018 9:43 pm

Time to sell a few more IDE interfaces.

Versions available:-

8-bit IDE V3b, This fits vertically within a A30x0/A4000, The podule connector pins are now fitted on the other side of the board compared to the previous batch, so they should fit in an A3020 or A4000 with an Econet card. They come supplied with a pre-formatted 512MB (~480MB usable) DOM.
I don't own an A3010 or A3020, so haven't had chance to fit this board, but they should be OK. The A4000+DOM is a close fit, the DOM and the main board fit either side of the audio hybrid, so be careful when fitting.


16-bit IDE V1b, these will fit into the backplane of any machine with a full-size podule bus. (e.g. A3x0/A4x0/A540/A5000/A7000/RPC). They have a 40-pin IDE connector with power supplied to pin 20 for powering DOM's (I have some 128MB 40-pin modules for £3 each, only sold with IDE interface)
They will also work (or at least they do for me) in an A305/A310 without a backplane.
If fitted into a machine without a backplane, the jumper link on JP3 must be removed, and the +5v red cable from the power supply connected to J4.
Depending on if it will be fitted with or without a backplane, the IDE connector can be either a right angle connector (with backplane, CF adapter or DOM can point straight out towards the back of the machine), or normal (without backplane, a CF adapter or DOM points towards the front of the machine, over the floppy drive). see pics.
Cards will NOT fit in A4xx/1 machines without a backplane, as the motherboard connector is a different orientation. (I think they should fit in an A4xx, not /1, they do work in my R140, but these machines all came with backplanes fitted as standard)

Postage/Packaging will be at cost. PM for details.

8-bit IDE V3b x 5 @ £25 each (including 512MB DOM) SOLD OUT

Hi Ian :D

Can I reserve the the following for collection at January’s ABUG meet-up please:-
  • one 8-bit IDE V3b
  • one 16-bit IDE V1b with 128MB 40-pin module (I let you know which way I would like the connector once I have opened up the victim to remind myself what’s in it...!)
Cheers

Mark

I'm interested in one 8-bit V3b with DOM (as long as it'll work in an A3000), shipped to Mountain View, CA.
SW/EE from New Zealand, now in Mountain View, CA, making BBC/Electron hardware projects for fun.
Most interesting: Arcflash, FX2+PiTubeDirect Tube/Cartridge adapter, USB cart interface.

I'll have a few more made for then, so I won't add you to the list for now.

It's fine in an A3000, it's where they have had the most testing.

Is the DOM on the 8bit version removable, and if yes, could I remove it and connect it to another device (eg Raspberry Pi) for copying over or backing up files?

Yes, it's removable. You can either plug the DOM into something else (need to get the gender of the connections right), or replace it with an IDE-SD card adapter, and just swap the SD card between machines. Mounting and reading the files from the SD card (or DOM) is not something I can help you with.

Hi Ian, fantastic work on these! Please could I put my name down for an 8-bit one?

(sorry I can't send PMs yet so if you could PM me the best way to contact you that would be great)
Thanks,
Tom

Thanks,

Thank you Ian! Mine arrived and works well in my A3000 :)

For some reason it didn't work when I first tried it last night -- just gave me 'Bad Drive' errors whenever I tried to do anything -- but I reseated the DOM and tried it again this morning, and it came to life and looks great! Now I just need to get the keyboard working well, and it'll actually be a useful machine :)

The speed test results from ZIDEFS::IDEDisc4.$.Apps.!Fs_speed are:

Mode 0: write 788kB/s read 819kB/s avg 812kB/s
Mode 12: write 705kB/s read 728kB/s avg 723kB/s

Thanks for the feedback. Good to know it survived the postal service.

Just one 16-bit card left out of this batch, nobody want a board for their backplane-less A310?
