Vintage Xebec S1410-A MFM to SASI/SCSI Hard Disk Controller ICD Multi I/O Atari:
$45.00

Vintage Xebec brand SASI/SCSI hard disk controller card model# S1410-A. Card is in excellent physical condition and was purchased last year by me for a project from another seller that listed these as New Old Stock. I have no reason to believe otherwise. One thing I did do was replace all of the original tantalum capacitors with new good quality electrolytic capacitors. Some of the originals had drifted from original spec and were causing electrical interference noise on the power rails. I had intended to use this with an MFM hard drive for a project build for an Atari 8-bit computer......a replica of the famed ICD Multi I/O interface box that attaches to the PBI of the Atari and allows you to use a parallel printer, RS-232 serial, and a SASI/SCSI Hard Disk drive.
Well, after many drive purchases and returns attemting to get a working MFM drive, I opted to go for a SCSI drive instead. So I no longer need this controller card. It is a stand alone controller card designed to mount to the top of a 5.25" MFM hard drive and connect to the computer via an interface card of some kind. Besides the ICD replica for the Atari, I would think it minght also work for the Tandy line of externl hard disks for the Model 1/II/III/4 as it is similar in design to the Tandy contoller cards and it is based on the WD1100 design, smae as the Tandy controller cards.
Selling this as UNTESTED, AS-IS with NO RETURNS, although I have no reason to believe that it doesn't work. A lot of the date codes on the ICs on this board date to 1986, so it's 38 years old. There's no wayI could warranty something that old, but as I said, I have no reason to doubt the original seller that it was a NOS card and it probably does work fine. That's the gamble one takes with vintage hardware.
