    IDE controller
  • special edition of the Buddha Flash IDE controller that is intended to be used with the Phoenix A1000 motherboard, but can also be used with original A1000 as well as A500 and Zorro Amigas
  • differences to Buddha Flash:
    • smaller PCB
    • hardware redesign, 5 chips instead of 8
    • no 26 pin expansion slot
    • floppy power connector
  • the board can be installed in the following places:
    • Front Slot Phoenix Board
    • Side Expansion Port (Phoenix board, A1000 board, A500)
    • Zorro Slot
  • if the board shall be used at the A500, a special edition with a different mounted 86 pin connector is needed
  • the board must not be installed in the front slot of the A1000 board
  • when used at the Phoenix front slot, the INT6 signal has to be provided to the board as this signal is missing - the side expansion ports provide that signal, so the wire is not necessary when installed there
  • height of the board was chosen so that a laptop CD drive (14mm) can be fitted above the card in the A1000
  • when installed on the Phoenix board front slot, the L64 jumper has to be removed
  • 2.5" hard disks can not be powered by the board due to thin PCB tracks - making them thick enough for that purpose would have been resulted in a more expensive multilayer board
    • it is necessary to provide power to the board via floppy power connector
  • in conjunction with a Phoenix X-Surf a new Mach chip is needed (includes also a fix which prevented the Amiga from booting with Kickstart v1.3)
  • only one jumper on the board, next to the flash chip: open = flash write protected, closed = flashing possible
  • small header in the middle of the board with two LED connectors
  • clock port
    • allows using expansions initially designed for the A1200 clock port
    • when installed in Zorro slot, pin 40 of the card's clock port is towards the front side of the computer, pin 19 resp. pin 1 towards the rear side
    • marked wire of clock port expansions go to pin 19 or pin 40, depending on the manufacturer's definition - e.g. expansions made by Individual Computers are installed with the red stripe on pin 40 (to the left), expansions of E3B mark pin 19 / pin 1 (to the right)
