No need to throw insults Jens!
I haven't seen all the info you refer to however what I have seen of the IDE68k design it is quite 'uncomplicated' (I do have the schematics but not the CPLD code).
Anyway my point is simply that they both use an Unbuffered design, so I'd have expected the CF compatibility to be similar.
Btw, I'm not suggesting Jacques' experience is widespread, only that it's very odd considering 2 aca500's and at more than 3 a500's are involved in the testing.
