If there's neither a buffer, nor DMA, then the CPU itself must catch the highspeed data stream in realtime (byte banging). Still, the CPLD could hold a small FIFO or whatever... Hell, I don't care about it. For me it sounds complicated and ISA slots are also becoming extinct anyway. (Well, right... similarly to 5.25" drives :-( ). L.
