It does not appear to be an Apocalypse as there is no L2 that I see.
The last two pictures are not of a PRPMC800 but of a carrier card, that somebody was selling a time ago with on amibay with a hmmm Apocalypse or other card, not sure here really.

But what does it mean, that some carrier cards have 3 and some 4 connectors?

Does this card work with sonnet?

If you are talking about the PCI Slots then 3 is 32 bit and 4 is 64bit

The 4 will still fit in the Mediator just the last part is left over hanging

I think the fine pitch headers for the PMC module are meant.

There are carriers (and PMC cards) with 3 and others with 4 headers. I'd suspect that this is about 32 vs. 64 bits nonetheless.

You can even see it correlate with the PCI connector.

@Hedeon
Is it actually confirmed that the Sonnet library works with the A3640?

I have just received a reply from Elbox that says that executing from Zorro III memory only works with Cyberstorms and "other accelerators".

Pretty sure I have read on here about someone else using the Sonnet library with A3640s?

Thanks.

Maybe that's a limitation only for Mediator Mk. Is? Which Mediator revision have you got?

Here is Elbox's email:

I am very confused right now...

It works with both Mediator 4000Di V3 Mk-III and with Prometheus Firebird with Firestorm firmware.

Thanks for your confirmation. Must be some weird Mk. I limitation. I have asked Elbox if they can sell me some upgraded MACHs (unlikely) to get it working with my A3640.

I will also test this on my Prometheus Firebird when I get the replacement CPLDs...

You need new cplds for your Firebird? The altera ones are broken?

Welp, sorry, I meant Prometheus Firestorm. I have a repro of the original Prometheus.

Yeah, one of the CPLDs is broken: it overheats and it's not detected by Quartus.

Ah, didn't know this was a custom build one. :-)

Still 180 of those PrPMC cards on EBay. ;-)

Great! But I would really add a 4-pin drive header to inject 5V.

Updated prometheus.library to 4.1

Fixed multi-functional PCI card recognition/set-up (e.g. NEC USB 2.0 cards)
Fixed PCI(e) bridge recognition/set-up

See http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=997765&postcount=1

So it turns out that the Mediator 4000di Mk. I is *actually* incompatible with the A3640 - it just can't execute anything from ZorroIII-mapped memory addresses.

I have finally tested my system with a CyberstormPPC (which was lent to me thanks to EAB user @reflex) and I could execute stuff from the Mediator memory without any issue. Which also solves my troubles with the Sonnet library and the Killer M1.

I will also send a message to @gsoravil as he has been having the same issues with his Mk. I for almost as long as me I hope that this info will be useful to other users.

I'm waiting for a gold-plated PCB .. but I will not have time to solder so that only PCB with rcl elements will be available
