Description

This is the BetaGamma BBC 8 Bit IDE Compact Flash Kit for the Acorn BBC Model B, B+ or Master Home Computer.

The kit is designed to fit internally and allow you to easily connect a fast Compact Flash card to use as a hard drive for the BBC.

The kit comes supplied with:

  • BetaGamma Acorn BBC 8 Bit IDE Interface - this acts as the ’host controller’
  • 40 Pin inline CF adapter - a standard off the shelf IDE to CF adapter with indicator LED’s for Power, Card detect, and Activity, it is powered directly by the Interface PCB, an external power connection is not required.
  • 34 Way (50cm long) IDC Flat Ribbon cable - connects the Interface to the Acorn BBC’s 1MHz Bus Connector usually found under the Machine
  • 3 Pin Interface Power cable - used to supply a Regulated +5V DC Supply to the Interface and CF card.
  • 2 x Scotch Lock Connectors - allow quick connection of the 3 Pin Power Cable onto the Machines existing Power Loom, they are quite self-explanatory and allow for a ‘No Soldering’ Installation.
  • Cable Ties to help secure the 3 Pin Power Cable to the existing power loom to reduce strain on the connection points.
  • Firmware ROM
    This is a 32K OTP PROM device and contains 2 ADFS Filing System ROMs.
    ADFS 1.33 is used for BBC Model B and B+ Microcomputer Systems.
    ADFS 1.53 is used for BBC Master 128/512/Turbo Microcomputer Systems.
    The PROM has been compiled so that when installed in a Model B / B+ 16K ROM socket then only ADFS 1.33 will be visible and Active.
    When Fitted to a Master Series System then it must be installed in a 32K socket where both ROMs will be visible, it is then a caseit of simply ‘*unplugging’ ADFS 1.33 and setting ADFS 1.53 as the Default Filing System

THe compact flash card is not supplied - from experience with other compact flash devices, we would recommend that you use a SanDisk or Integral compact flash card - be wary of the large number of fakes of these which appear on the market which may not work with the device.

As well as support direct from the designer, access is also provided to a Dropbox folder online where you can find video tutorials, updates and fixes.
