Autoconfig IDs

Jump to: navigation, search

Autoconfig is probably still a trademarked term. We are not affiliated with the owner of this trademark. The term is used in a descriptive manner here, as the technology of not requiring jumpers for resource assignment of an expansion board has always been called like this on our favourite computers.

Vendor ID

individual Computers GmbH uses vendor ID 4626 (decimal) or 0x1212 (hex). Note that this number has not been assigned "officially", as during the time of Buddha development (late 1996), there was no entity that could have assigned an official number. Instead, a highly scientific method of obtaining a number was chosen: A coin was tossed for every bit of the 16-bit vendor ID.

(*): If the serial number is larger than 128, this indicates that the card is the 2019 version with IDE speeder. In that case, substract 128 from the serial number to get the actual MHz number.

other identification

Early ACA12xx accelerators use the "ACA common interface", which only makes use of a single data line. This method of identification is no longer used.

With product ID 26 used twice, there's additional identification of the serial number required: If product#26 has been found, the serial number will tell what product it really is: #0 is the ACA1211, and numbers 2630 or 2631 point to the BigRam2630. Further, flash/config software can do additional plausibility checks with the chipset found: If AGA has been detected, only ACA1211 can be in the system. If OCS/ECS has been detected, it can only be a BigRam 2630.
