This is what I call silicon enhanced. Yummy.
I was just wondering about the onboard IDE after looking at the unpopulated headers of those Scottish User Group cards.
I guess it would be best to run a CDROM off the A1200 IDE and the TF1260 for main HDD?
I have a slimline CDROM with SATA? to IDE adapter connected to a buffered interface, but cdrom is external at the moment.

Probably best the other way round as the 1200IDE is needed to bootstrap the TFIDE.

Credit where its due Erik Hemming has written me a driver for the TF ide interface.. its a little slow right now but we'll improve he speed and add DMA support in the TF4060.

Shame the community have behaved so bad otherwise this would have been open source.

Would that work as a boot device ?, Or would you need a custom built kickstart device with tfxx.device in it.

Just need it to be in a rom somwhere. or you can have it in the startup sequence of the disk in the 1200 ide...

loadmodule tfide.device

then it will boot from the tfide.device if its higher boot priority

If not worried about CDROM. these would be a nice and neat solution that allows easy access to CF cards. I use the backdoor hatch( :o ) adapter on my A1200's. I think the new A1200.net have cuts outs marked for the angled side adapter.

You summed it up perfectly.

It's a beautiful looking card.
