4000 is an autobooting Zorro III card fitted with 16Mbit (or
8Mb--1MB version) of FlashROM memory with extremely fast 32-bit
The on-board FlashROM allows storage of programs, which are
run at the computer's boot-up process. Every resident-capable
programs/libraries/devices and AmigaOS ROM Updates can be
stored in the eFlash 4000 flash memory and executed without
reboots on a cold Amiga start. This reduces the boot time
of classic Amigas dramatically and allows
initialisation of PCI cards installed in Mediator-equipped
A3000 and A4000 computers before the AmigaOS system starts.
The computer may be booted from mass storage devices connected
through various PCI controllers, e.g. Spider Hi-Speed USB
Users of the AmigaOS4.x operating system will have an additional
benefit: the eFlash 4000 card will give them a possibility
of definite shortening of the system's start time by executing
the AmigaOS code from the FlashROM memory.
The minimum hardware configuration: any
Amiga with Zorro III slots.
The recommended configuration: Amiga 3000 or 4000 with a Mediator
PCI system and a PowerPC procesor running under AmigaOS4.
eFlash 4000 features:
16Mb of Flash memory
4000/2MB includes two 8Mbit MXIC Flash memory (29FMX800) chips
organized in the linear-addressed 16Mbit memory area 524,288
x 32 bits.
• 8Mb of Flash memory
4000/1MB includes two 4Mbit MXIC Flash memory (29FMX400) chips
organized in the linear-addressed 8Mbit memory area 262,144
x 32 bits.
Extremely fast Zorro III interface
eFlash 4000 is a 32-bit, autobooting device configured in
the Zorro III address space. With the extremely fast Zorro
III interface, eFlash 4000 is several times faster than any
FlashROM installed on the Zorro II card.
The true 32-bit interface gives significant increase in speed
when the computer boots from AmigaOS Kickstart stored in eFlash

of computer booting from the Flash memory.
• Program selector
eFlash 4000 is provided with a hardware switch for selecting
starting of an alternative batch of programs stored in the
Hardware write protection
eFlash 4000 is provided with hardware protection against unwanted
or accidental reprogramming.
• 100,000 erase/programming cycles
Flash technology reliably stores memory contents even after
100,000 erase and program cycles.
• 20-year data retention
newest Flash technology guarantees very long retention time.
4000 is compatible with all A3000/4000 processor card models.
Installation is a trouble-free fit-in process.
eFlash 4000 fits in Zorro III slot.
