Non-Flash version of the Buddha

The (Flash) Buddha is a half length Zorro II card which provides the Amiga with two additional IDE controllers. The card has support for auto-booting, even under Kickstart 1.3 and a local I/I expansion port. The Buddha is available in two main versions, the normal Buddha and the Flash Buddha. The Flash Buddha has all the features of the Buddha except it's 32K ROM can be flash upgraded and it has an additional connector for using devices designed for the A1200 clock port. The IDE timing of the Buddha cards can be controlled in software enabling compatibility with older drives as well as allowing newer drives to run at a fast speed. You can even use hard disks larger than 4GB with the supplied software as it uses TD64 commands. Newer versions of this card ship with golden edge connectors.
