Mediator PCI 1200 SX Mediator PCI 1200 TX

The Mediator PCI 1200 TX is the successor of the popular Mediator PCI 1200 busboard, expanding the product even one step further:

The Mediator PCI 1200 TX offers Amiga 1200 users the opportunity to use up to 6 PCI cards significantly improving the computer performance. Additionally, the new Mediator model has a Power Management Interface, which allows waking up the computer with external events (e.g. with USB or LAN signals) and shutting it down controlled by software .

The minimum hardware configuration is: Amiga 1200 in tower case with a 4MB RAM expansion card. The recommended configuration is: Amiga 1200 in Winner/Power/E-BOX tower case, any 68060 (or PPC with 68060) turbo card with 64MB RAM, a SharkPPC G3/G4 card with 128MB SDRAM, a Voodoo3 graphic card.

The Mediator PCI 1200 TX features:

  • 6 PCI slots (PCI 2.1 compatible)
    For simultaneous use of up to six PCI cards fully assimilated in the Amiga environment.
  • Power Management Interface
    Allows waking up the computer with external events (e.g. with USB or LAN signals) and shutting it down controlled by software.
  • 33MHz PCI clock (66MHz with SharkPPC G3/G4)
    With the PCI clock running at 33MHz, data transfers are executed with the bandwidth of up to 132MB/s and up to 264MB/s for 66MHz clocking.
  • 32-bit PCI datapatch
    Longword transfers are supported in all data transfer types: PCI to Amiga, Amiga to PCI and PCI to PCI.
  • 4GB PCI memory space
    Mediator PCI 1200 TX allows access to the entire 4GB of the PCI memory space. Access to the entire PCI memory space is executed through the 8MB window in the A1200 memory space. With a hardware-supported paging mechanism, PCI memory access is executed without any slowdown compared to the linear memory access.
  • Busmastering/DMA in all PCI slots
    Mediator PCI supports the busmastering mechanism in all its PCI slots. The PCI cards in the busmaster mode can offer extremely fast DMA access (up to 132MB/s) without any CPU load. Up to four PCI busmaster cards may be used simultaneously in Mediator.

Mediator PCI 1200 TX is compatible with all the major A1200 turbo card models.

Mediator PCI 1200 TX is designed for the following turbo cards: Blizzard PPC/060, Blizzard PPC/040, Blizzard 1260, Apollo 1260, Blizzard 1240, Apollo 1240, Blizzard 1230 (III, IV), Apollo 1230, GVP 1230, Elbox 1230 and M-Tec 1230.

Mediator PCI 1200 TX and PCI cards in its slots fit perfectly in the following tower systems: Winner Tower, V-Tower, Power Tower, E/BOX 1200, Infinitiv Tower, EZ Tower.

Mediator PCI 1200 TX can be also installed in other Amiga towers though this may require some physical modifications of these.

The following PCI cards are currently supported in Mediator PCI 1200 TX:

  • Graphic cards
  • Ethernet 10Mbps cards
  • Fast Ethernet 100Mbps cards
  • TV tuner cards
  • Sound cards
  • Spider USB 2.0 PCI card

The following PCI card support is currently being developed:

  • I/O cards
  • MPEG-2 hardware decoders

Included with the Mediator PCI 1200 TX is the Mediator Multimedia CD with drivers for Sound, TV tuner, Ethernet 10Mbps, Fast Ethernet 100Mbps and Graphic PCI cards.
