IDE4 Z2 - A 4 unit IDE controller for Amiga 2000

IDE4 Z2 is a Gayle compatible 4 unit IDE controller, designed for Amiga 2000. It supports 4 IDE devices on two ports (primary and secondary). Without any additional driver the primary port is active (Kickstart 2.05+ is required with scsi.device). IDEfix driver is required to enable the second port or to use a CD / DVD device (as the default scsi.device in ROM doesn't support it).

CF master / slave mode is selectable via a jumper. Connector for IDE activity LED is also available. The controller is RDB compatible: HDToolBox and HDInstTools can be used for disk partitioning.
