SCSI2SD v5 with extended Molex power whip
emulates a SCSI-I or SCSI-2 hard drive using a micro-SD memory card.
Each SCSI2SD purchase includes a fully assembled and tested circuit
board, ready for use.
SCSI2SD v5 firmware is open source.
SCSI2SD V5.1 continues the "V5" family, and is based on the same firmware and hardware as V5, but adds a full size SD card slot, and a DB25 pin header for direct installation of an external SCSI connector.
Termination is now software-controlled (using scsi2sd-util), removing the need to deal with physical termination resistor packs.
SCSI2SD V5.1 SSD - Replaces Seagate ST3550N
This V5 SCSI2SD adapter includes a microSD card configured to be an exact drop-in replacement for a Seagate ST3550N, with the same vendor, Device ID, and sector count (891,574) as the original
SCSI2SD V5 Powerbook Edition (2.5")
A SCSI to SD memory card adapter to suit Apple PowerBook laptops. This board replaces the 2.5" SCSI hard drive found in Apple PowerBook laptops.
SCSI2SD emulates a SCSI-2 hard drive using a micro-SD memory card. Each SCSI2SD purchase includes a fully assembled and tested circuit board, ready for use.
A SCSI2SD purchase does NOT include the following:
- Micro-SD memory card
- SCSI cables, power cables, usb cables, or any other accessory
SCSI2SD is an open hardware and open source project. Please visit the SCSI2SD page at http://www.codesrc.com/mediawiki/index.php?title=SCSI2SD, where you will find full schematics, PCB layouts, and software source code.
- In-built active terminator.
- Firmware updateable over USB
- Highly configurable over USB
- Selectable SCSI ID
- Selectable parity support
- Enable/disable Unit Attention Condition
- Artificial limits on the SCSI disk size (eg. limit size to 4G to avoid OS bugs)
Tested with a Apple Powerbook 520C. The SCSI connector pinout is designed to suit Powerbooks, but may work on other SCSI laptops.
Reported to work on a Thinkpad 860 running Windows NT 4.0 PowerPC. screenshot
SCSI2SD V6 Rev. F
SCSI2SD emulator/SSD, version 6, Revision F
- Full-Size SD card slot.
- A floppy-style berg power connector is used instead of the traditional Molex plug.
- Better performance. The hardware supports synchronous transfers at 10MB/s.
- Access to the data via USB.. The SCSI2SD drives will appear when connected to a PC via USB. This is limited to around 1.2MB/s (USB FS speeds).
- Superior noise resistance to deal with poor termination and poor cabling.
- Integrated terminator, enabled via software configuration, using SCSI2SD-UTIL6
