RapidRoad is our answer to the high demand for USB products for classic Amiga computers. RapidRoad is a dual-port USB2.0 High-speed (480MBit) host module. It comes with a license for the most versatile and compatible USB stack that exists for the Amiga: Poseidon by Chris Hodges. With it's dual-interface design, it can be used with almost all types of Amiga computers. Requirements are:
Installing RapidRoad on the dedicated expansion port of the X-Surf 100 card yields the highest possible performance: If the X-Surf-100 is operating in Z3 mode and a high-end accelerator is being used, real-world transfer rates from USB mass-storage devices that exceed 7 Mbytes per second can be expected.
The installation of RapidRoad on the X-Surf-100 is as easy as can be: Just plug the module to the networking card and you are already done: The module will activate the two USB ports of the X-Surf-100. Additional cables are not required.
Although this version has a physical clockport connector, it cannot be used on a clockport. This version of RapidRoad will only work on the high-speed port of the X-Surf-100 networking card.
