An 82c55 based IDE adapter for the RC2014 computer!
Connect 2.5" or 3.5" IDE hard drives (yes, the old parallel ATA ones) to the RC2014. The adapter uses the same pin mappings as the DiskIO v3, therefore support is available in RomWBW (Wayne Warthen's CP/M distribution) of which there is a fork with support for the RC2014 https://github.com/sbelectronics/RomWBW.
An RC2014 82c55 disk IO driver has also been added to z88dk, enabling disk access from your C programs. ChaN's FatFS has been adapted to run on top of this enabling FAT filesystem access https://github.com/feilipu/z88dk-libraries/tree/master/ff.
All the parts (with the exception of the 2.5" IDE connector) are readily available from the usual electronics distributors, a BOM is in the linked GitHub repository.
It is also possible to use this as a general purpose parallel I/O card.
Who wouldn't want some spinning rust attached to their retro computing platform of choice? :)
