SatanDisk v4.3 lets you use SD card as a HD on your Atari ST
« on: February 22, 2023, 06:58:40 PM »

connects to ACSI port of Atari ST
up to 4 GB size of MMC/SD card (this is the limit of MMC/SD card AFAIK)
HDDRIVER compatible
cheap – price of parts is approx. 15 Euro (+ approx. 12 Euro for the MMC card)
open-source – free schematics, firmware, sources, so anyone can build it on his own
uses custom ACSI-to-MCU bridge based on the XILINX XC9536XL to achieve data transfer reliability
dimensions of PCB: 60 x 42 mm on double-sided PCB
tested (and works) with STFM (TOS 1.02), STE (TOS 2.06), Mega ST1 (TOS 1.02), Mega STE (TOS 2.05)
tested with 2 different MMC cards and 2 different SD cards and it works fine
