the FastATA 4000 MK-VI CF/SATA controller you can now take
advantage of the latest low-cost, high-capacity SATA/ATA/EIDE
devices like hard drives, Solid State drives (SSD), Compact
Flash cards, DVD drives, CD-RW drives, CD-ROM drives, ZIP
drives, LS-120 drives, etc.
The FastATA 4000 MK-VI CF/SATA is designed to simultaneously
use up to four devices: one Compact Flash card, one SATA drive
and two to four PATA devices. The number of simultaneously
used Compact Flash cards or SATA drives may be increased with
additional adapters up to the total number of all connected
devices of four.
The minimum hardware configuration is: Amiga
3000 or Amiga 4000.
The recommended configuration is: Amiga 3/4000 with 68060
(or PPC with 68060) processor card with 64MB RAM.
FastATA 4000 MK-VI CF/SATA controller features represent the
ultimate technology in its category:
transfer rate of up to 16.6MB/s
The FastATA controller with its maximum transfer rate of 16.6MB/s
in the PIO 4 mode offers a huge capacity reserve for fast
mass storage devices, especially for fast hard drives. Therefore,
applications may run much faster if they can count on fast
access to large data files.
for ATAPI standard devices
The FastATA 4000 controller implements the ATAPI standard
as well, for use with devices like CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, ZIP,
LS-120, DVD drives. This enables connection of ATAPI-standard
devices to the Amiga with no need of installing additional
buffered and terminated EIDE ports
The controller operates with two EIDE ports, which enable
installation of up to 4 IDE/EIDE/ATAPI devices. Both controller
ports are fully buffered and terminated in accordance with
the recommendations set forth in the ATA-3 specification.
Compatible with PIO-0, PIO-3, PIO-4, ATA/33, ATA/66, ATA/100
compatible with HDDs > 128GB
Limitations on support for > 128GB HDDs have been
eliminated in the FastATA 4000 controller. The LBA 48 addressing
support is included in the onboard BootROM.
The controller automatically recognises any device attached
to it, negotiates the highest possible data transfer rates,
switches the device into its appropriate mode and transfers
data at the maximum
processor type recognition
The FastATA 4000 MK-VI CF/SATA controller automatically detects
type of processor and optimises and modifies some software
routines in order to achieve the highest possible data transfer
rate between the controller and the computer memory.
The computer recognises the controller as a 32-bit device
configured in the Zorro III address space. Full 32-bit operation
of the controller combined with very efficient software guarantee
significant increase in the speed of your computer.
