Super IDE anyone ? :)

Post by MooZ »

Last Easter week end some crazy dudes releases a demo called Loopback for the V6Z80P, a homebrew computer based on a Z80.
The awesome guy behind that computer has a nice article about an 8-bit IDE interface. And I was wondering (well maybe that was already asked and aswered in the past) how hard will it be to make an ide interface for the pce?

it is probably more difficult to write the software to handle the interface than it is to make the interface itself. Even that may turn out to be not-so-bad

given the amount of access you have on the PCE system's expansion port, compared to other machines like a C64 w/the cart/user port...... i don't think it would be very difficult.

Do you know if there some "commented" disassembly or the system cards lying around?
It may give us a hint on how to make such kind of interface.
