I uploaded the Layout to http://520052975648.bei.t-online.de/ssi-interface.png I guess it is done the way you described above. I'm just wondering if it is possible to get a stable transfer with TA = $0001 with a 1Mhz CIA ?!? Regarding the cable Benjamin (the hardware guy) wrote, the runtime delay of the driver ICs are about 2-10ns , the signal runtime on the cable is 2ns, while half a CNT period is 2µs. The reflections and runtime delay is neglectable. @Marko: I will try the IN/OUT Flag trigger for shift register reset as soon as I get access to the hardware again ) Ciao... ...Micha Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
