I recently run into a problem where I needed another PATA2SATA and my existing adapter from Vantec (CB-SP200) based on the JMicron bridge I could not get anymore.
Recently I got a adapter from Lindy :
where I thought it's a dual ATA Host mode for connecting a SATA device,but instead of that, one port is configured in Master mode and other in Slave mode.
Also this was recognized by the used chips JMH330 and JMH330S.However the PCB board seems to be universal and based on the number 20330-2 I could dig,that it has been made by eMegatech:
sadly the pdf could not be digged out.
There are several unused jumpers on the board,where some of them can be traced down, but those around the bridge chip it can be worse.Does somebody have a same adapter but fully populated?Also if somebody has a full datasheet for the JM20330 or JMH330/S I would be gratefull.For now with no luck with Lindy, I got a adapter from Startech, currently the PATA2SATA2, where it does have the dual ATA Host mode,also Master/Slave mode selectable via jumper.The bridge chip is from SunplusIt SPIF22A, but don't have experience with this bridge chip realibility,any experience please?
