The Purpose of removing the PCMCIA reset bug

KA 21 is a great hardware solution for Gayle chip that does have a serious PCMCIA reset bug, which you can disable thru installing PCMCIA fixes on Aminet. The Gayle chip in Amiga 1200 seems to be rushed during the production by Commodore. So, it does not reset PCMCIA card during system reset (for example keyboard reset Amiga+Amiga+Ctrl). Then some cards simply stops working after such event until the Amiga is powercycled, which means powering your Amiga 1200 off and the on again.

So. What this new chip from RastPort does is that KA 21 generates forced CC_RESET high pulse from system reset signal. This device is installed directly on the Gayle chip, and works instantly. Yes, you need to open up your Amiga 1200. But you will have less issues with it with this neat new solution.

Hardware Gayle Reset Fix KA 21 for Amiga 1200 Features

  • Solid and durable.
  • High quality PLCC socket, additionally machined to ensure good contact with the chip.
  • Pin header for optional system reset button.
  • Pin header with A14 and A15 signals for 2-way and 4-way clockport expanders. No need for inserting additional socket under ROM chip when installing these expanders.
  • NOT Compatible with FastATA from Elbox: KA21 cannot be used together with FastATA solution from Elbox. The reason is FastATA has its own board mounted on Gayle chip.

As seen above. Everything is ok, except for if you use the FastATA solution from Elbox. You won’t be able to install KA 21, because FastATA already sits on top of the Gayle chip in Amiga 1200. Other than that. This is a fantastic Polish product! KA 21 is the perfect solution for people that are annoyed because of the Gayle reset bug.

Amitopia is looking forward to make a nice review for you of this product in the future. Great to see that people like Grzegorz from Poland, which is one of the countries helping the Amiga a lot to survive. He is for sure helping Classic Amiga users with unique products that keeps the machines live almost forever! So, we send lots of Kudos back. Thanks so much!
