The Amiga 1200 Gayle Adapter (Revision E) is a hardware that fixes all the bugs found in the Gayle chip and also works elegantly with certain hardware solutions. Besides the well-known PCMCIA reset fix, the extension includes a PCMCIA LED (CN2), a keyboard reset (CN3) as well as a dedicated clock port (only usable with the appropriate driver of the clock port hardware, see list below). It also works perfectly with the 4-way clockport expander (picture 4) in the Revison G and the FastATA from Elbox. This makes it the first and only adapter that combines all these bug fixes and functions.
The clock port of the adapter
The fully buffered clock port on the Gayle adapter (CN5) is not compatible with the clock port on the Amiga 1200. Custom drivers are needed as the port uses different address (A12-A15) and data lines (D8-D15).
Overview of the different clockport devices tested on the clockport of the Gayle adapter:
|RapidRoad USB||-||not work|
|Prisma Megamix||-||not work|
|Delfina Flipper||-||not work|
|Delfina 1200||-||not work|
|Prelude 1200||-||not work|
|Melody 1200||-||not work|
|VS1011 Card||-||not work|
|SPI Masterbus||-||not work|
Note: Not all functioning units in a system necessarily harmonise with each other. In addition, the simultaneous operation of several extensions can significantly affect the device line.
