|Amiga: SCSI Driver for AmigaOS4|
The AmigaOne specification contain an on-board IDE controller, but much of the Amiga users use SCSI hardware (harddrives, CD drives, scanners).
That's why Amiga Inc.plans to develop a SCSI driver for the "NCR SCSI scripts chip" for Amiga OS4.x (today, NCR is a subsidiary company of LSI Logic).
An internal document describing the reasons why these chips have been chosen was published on the AmigaOne mailing list (title link). The same chip was utilized in diverse Amiga products (e.g. in newer Phase5 acceleration cards).
These chips are to be of first class at Amiga Inc. at this time, but this decision might change if a better solution would turn out.
