I have a 1230/28, is that supported?
ACA1231 is the predecessor of the ACA1232, and it has almost the same asyncronous interface to the A1200. The ACA1230 series are all fully sync with the A1200, so they are a bit more piccy about the timing.

I have successfully run all three versions of the ACA1230 on the ACA500, but this highly depends on a clean clock source from the A500 motherboard: I have only tried this with a Rev.8a board, which has a very clean signal quality. This may be different on older A500 revisions and with worse power supplies.

In other words: It's worth a try, but I can't guarantee it. The ACA1230 series therefore has the same status as the B1230-IV: Works in the lab, but it's not guaranteed to work.
