Re: [N8VEM-S100:4046] Re: Run of Dual CF-Card/Hard Disk IDE S-100 Boards

It really has nothing to do with the cards as the select is driven by a flip-flop - I see the same thing on my board but have not set down yet to debug what is going on but Thomas is right there is some timing problem is going on as DO0 is clocked into the flip-flop via SEL_SECOND* and WR* being combined - there is a mis-timing of the signals as that really is the only thing that could cause this - guess others have been lucky or have not tried to use the second CF card.

One of the issues John has pointed out in the past, is that the current software/hardware is VERY SELECTIVE on what brand and model of cards that work with this board...

It maybe necessary at some point to redo his code based on the Z80 Zeta code or other ?, that handles a large number of cards...

I'm sure its a timing issues... but it may need someone to look at it in detail...

My preliminary check this afternoon shows me that there is a timing issue at U15, the 74ls02.  Using my logic analyzer and monitoring the inputs and the output (which clocks the flip flop) I see a big timing difference between SEL_SECOND and WR.
What this means is that the output of the gate never goes high.

I am going to start a new post to document and deal with the troubleshooting of this problem.
