Is there an open source IDE buffer?

Post by Cheshire Noir »

Hey Folks,
I see various IDE buffers being sold around the traps, for what seems to be exorbitant prices. Is there any Open Source alternatives out there?
Happy to start with just a schematic as I'm happy to use KiCAD to produce an actual board...

Primarily targeting the A1200 internal IDE header...

Inline buffer based on Terriblefire's TF536 layout.

Kicad 6 project attached.

Use in conjunction with 5cm cable on the unbuffered side to your card/motherboard + longer cable on the buffered side to your IDE adapter.
