IDE / SATA conversion

Hi guys,

I need design an IDE/SATA converter, desirable also to be capable to work with SATA3 standard.

The first step I need, is to define electrical hardware pinouts, constraints and specifications of this blackbox ( I´m not yet woried concerning firmware ).

Do anybody could send a picture or electrical circuit diagram that I could use like reference ?

Thanks in advance.

IDE / SATA conversion

IDE/SATA bridge retail products are single-chip solutions, not much to design exept applying one of the existing bridge chips.
The IDE speed limit is in the range of SATA 1, so SATA 3 wouldn't be of much use.

Re: IDE / SATA conversion

Do you know some chip that performs ( only ) this task ?
