Amiga 2000 IDE Interface (Coprocessor Slot)
This internal IDE Interface card comes as a plug-in card for the (Co)processor slot in the Amiga 2000, that slot is an 86 pin connector that makes it possible, among other things, to place a card with a (faster) CPU.
But since the slot contains all the signals that the 68000 processor has, converting the 68000 CPU version of the IDE controller was accomplished without much effort.
The Amiga 2000 IDE Interface (Coprocessor Slot) is specially designed for use with the Amiga 2000, this is the first version of the interface which is no longer placed as an interface between motherboard and 68000 processor.
Option : Amiga 2000 IDE Interface (Coprocessor Slot) :
The Amiga 2000 IDE Interface (Coprocessor Slot) is low profile, so even with a CF adapter with CF card plugged directly into the IDE card, the cover of the A2000 can simply be closed.
The interface is NOT Autobooting, you boot from a special bootdisk, which after loading the IDE driver switches to the harddisk / CF card and continues the boot from there.
The average time between the reset and a loaded Workbench 1.3 is 20-25 seconds under kickstart 1.3.
Master / Slave combinations of CF / hard disk / CD-ROM*
CD-ROM / DVD-ROM Support from Kickstart 2.0x
400-800 KB Read speed (depends on CPU / Filesystem / IDE Device)
* there seem to be drivers for CD-ROM support under kickstart 1.3, support from kickstart 2.0x
