    Default Keeping Track of All the XT-IDE Variants

    Since the original XT-IDE became available in 2008 or 2009, many others here have taken the concept and run with it. With similar sounding names, it can be confusing to keep track of them all. Here is a list with links the the appropriate pages :

    Andrew Lynch/lynchaj
    XTIDE Rev2 - http://www.vintage-computer.com/vcfo...tle=XTIDE+Rev2

    James Pearce/pearce_jj
    XT-CF - http://www.lo-tech.co.uk/wiki/XT-CF
    XT-CFv2 - http://www.lo-tech.co.uk/wiki/XT-CFv2
    XT-CF-Lite - http://www.lo-tech.co.uk/wiki/XT-CF-lite
    XT-CFv3 - http://www.lo-tech.co.uk/wiki/XT-CFv3

    If there are any more real designs, please let me know.

    Thanks for putting this list together. I am wondering if it should be moved to Wiki, otherwise it will be lost here.

    Can any be purchased pre-assembled?

    Not currently (AFAIK). The problem for all us is time... obviously this is just a hobby and hand-assembly takes time, for me anyway, then there's the question of who carrys the risk if it doesn't work. Short run is the obvious solution, but it needs 100 units minimum to be paid for in advance, and in any case adds *considerable* cost.

    We should add eeguru's IDEjr to this list:

    IBM PCjr sidecar IDE controller with memory upgrade and RTC

    http://www.retrotronics.org/svn/jride/trunk/hardware/

    It does appear that the retrotronics wiki is down so you can't see the main project page, but the above link at least gets you schematics.

    Are any XT-IDE cards still being produced by anybody? I could really use another one or two!

    Sorry. The project page has been back a while and updated:

    http://www.retrotronics.org/jride/

    I had an ISA version as well. Tomi had added support in the Universal BIOS, however there were some compatibility issues with enough machines I didn't have time to work through, that I dropped the project. Might be nice to pick it back up. Was 5V, PTH, and the next spin was self programming.

    I've got plenty more PCBs available now:

    - ISA CompactFlash rev.2b (now has two ROM address options)
    - 8-bit IDE rev.2 (errata is fixed)
    - XT-CF-lite rev.2 (adds a bus transceiver to the earlier design)

    All available at www.lo-tech.co.uk.
