The TS-9600 is a PC compatible IDE interface board that mates via the PC104 connector to a Single Board Computer (SBC). The DIP switch controls the IDE address and IRQ used. All versions of DOS we have tested don't require interrupts. Our TS-Linux 3.0 kernel does require an interrupt. The TS-9600 IDE interface is usually mapped as DOS drive C: or '/dev/hda' in Linux and can be mapped as DOS drive D: or '/dev/hdc' in Linux using Dip Switch 4. The TS-9600 supports Master and Slave hard drives using the same cable.

FCC Advisory

This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and if not installed and used properly (that is, in strict accordance with the manufacturer's instructions), may cause interference to radio and television reception. It has been type tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device in accordance with the specifications in Part 15 of FCC Rules, which are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference when operated in a commercial environment. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause interference, in which case the owner will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.

If this equipment does cause interference, which can be determined by turning the unit on and off, the user is encouraged to try the following measures to correct the interference:

Reorient the receiving antenna. Relocate the unit with respect to the receiver. Plug the unit into a different outlet so that the unit and receiver are on different branch circuits. Ensure that mounting screws and connector attachment screws are tightly secured. Ensure that good quality, shielded, and grounded cables are used for all data communications. If necessary, the user should consult the dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for additional suggestions.
