SUBWAY USB controller for Amiga (clockport version) available!
E3B is pleased to announce the availability of the USB controller SUBWAY, which has been presented the public at the Amiga trade show in Cologne 2001.
We at E3B believe that Amiga Classic should not drop of the edge of technology, even with the long forecast new hardware platforms rising finally at the horizon.
As many Zorro card owners asked for compatibility of SUBWAY with common clockport featured card like the Xsurf, isdn surfer or the Buddha Flash, we consequently improvemented the SUBWAY design to fulfill these wishes. Due to the different timings and signals on these non-Commodore clockports only one version of the SUBWAY exists now, which works with these faster operated clock ports.
Therefore SUBWAY can also be used in already fully equipped Zorro systems, which have no Zorro slot free anymore for a HIGHWAY. Also Amiga 1200 users which use PCI as bus solution, but having no PCI slot free any more or want to spare it for high volume data applications can use the SUBWAY as USB solution out of the box.
By introducing the world's smallest USB controller SUBWAY E3B is able to offer a complete range of solutions for USB and ethernet. Together with the USB stack Poseidon (by Chris Hodges, http://www.platon42.de) and its GUI Trident (which both have been proven its feasability in every day work) it is possible to use up to four modern USB devices from the PC market without any further additional hardware (like hubs) directly on the Amiga 1200.
Distribution of SUBWAY will be handled by our distributor KDH Datentechnik http://www.kdh-datentechnik.com.
We at E3B would like to thank all people who have helped us to develop and improve our USB products according to your wishes.
E3B will be present on the Aachen Amiga trade show at KDH Datentechnik.
