Jan 2006Unal Z launches the adapter database, it goes online. The ADF collection is entirely that from the EPRM, containing a total of 622 ADFs. Shared adapter-IDs are not yet separately handled, such adapters share, not surprising, the same page. • There is only one adapter image, that of the unknown, or unreleased, or undocumented 5087 Tandon SCSI Host Adapter. It might be partially or fully compatible to the 508C Trantor T228 SCSI Host Adapter. The Tandon adapter is based on AM53C80JC (© 1986 AMD), the SCSI extension of Media Vision Pro Audio Spectrum 16 (ISA bus) is also based on AM5380JC, and that is a known Trantor SCSI domain.
