Buddha IDE Zorro (20-year Anniversary Edition)
enlarge

The 20-year anniversary edition of the Buddha flash is exactly what the Buddha has always been: A top-class IDE controller. By popular demand of our loyal Amiga Kit customers, we have helped fund a new production run of the successful Z2-controller. Technical data remains the same: Buddha is an IDE-controller for all Amiga computers with Zorro-slots. In addition to two IDE-ports, there's a clock port for hardware originally designed for the A1200 computer. A new feature of the controller is that the IDE ports can supply power for a DOM module. Modern 3.3V technology saves power and only causes moderate temperature increase inside the computer.

All known features of the IDE controller are still available:

Autoboot with Kickstart V1.3, 2.0 and 3.1
two IDE-Ports for up to four IDE devices
compatible with almost all IDE/Atapi devices:
harddisks
DOM modules (40-pin)
Industrial-CF cards (with Adapter, not included)
Atapi CD-Roms (any speed)
Atapi CD-changers
Atapi CD-Writer (with MakeCD)
Syquest removable drives
LS120 (the 120MB-floppy, aka "A-drive")
IDE ZIP drives
Autoboot from ZIP and LS120 drives


Supplied with the latest firmware installed by Amiga Kit Technical™

Performance: Even with slow devices, transfer rates of 2.2 MBytes/second(*) can be achieved. The raw transfer rate is only limited by the Zorro-2 bus, which is 3.58 MBytes/second.(**)

The drivers have been programmed by Oliver Kastl, who has set highest standards with the "ALF" drivers and the IDE-fix (later "IDE-max") software. The software includes the whole IDE-package from Elaborate Bytes: Cache CD Filesystem, Harddisk Autopark, CD-changer tool, CD-32 emulator (only for AGA-chipset).

Harddisks or solid-state media can be prepared with HDToolbox or the iComp-installer, which complements the software package that comes with the 20-year anniversary edition of the Buddha controller: We have licensed the OS versions 1.3, 2.1 and 3.1, and included them on a 128MByte-DOM which is included in the price. The automatic installer makes preparing a harddisk easier than any other software did before: Just a few mouse clicks, and even the rather complicated process of installing media with a 64-bit file system is completed. Our installer brings the ease of use of today's computers to the computer system that introduced simple usability to the computer market in the 1980s.

The Linux- and NetBSD drivers for older versions of the Buddha controller can be used on this new version without change.

Scope of delivery: Controller, software on 128MByte-DOM, printed short manual.

Caution: UDMA cables cannot be used with this controller.

Additional Information and related Downloads can be found in our WIKI.

(*): measured with the classic "Quantum Bigfoot" harddisk
(**): performance depends on installed accelerator. Maximum transfer rate can be reached with 68020 and 68030 CPUs.
