Goldstar Prime 2

The Goldstar Prime 2 is the main chipset (and I hope the whole name) of a ISA 16-bit I/O card. Anyway, it has another writting in silk: IDE PLUS-V3. It features an IDE channel (a HDC), a Floppy controller (FDC), a parallel port (LPT), a game port, and two RS-232 serial lines (COM) driven by two 16450 UARTS.

The parallel port can be 0x378 or 0x278, and the serial ports can be 0x3F8 and 0x3E8 for the first (COM1 and COM3), and 0x2F8 and 0x2E8 for the second (COM2 and COM4 respectively). The IRQs of the two serial and the parallel port can be chosen from [3,4,5,7,9].

I don't know too much about the FDC configuration.

You can get a scanned version of it at 200dpi: IMAGE.

Jumper Configuration

Jumper Position Description
1-2 2-3
JP1 1 Enabled Disabled Floppy controller 1
2 Primary Secondary IDE HDC channel
3 Gameport maybe?
4 Enabled Disabled Serial port 1
5 Enabled Disabled Floppy controller 2
6 Enabled Disabled IDE HD controller
7 COM2 COM4 Serial port 2
8 COM1 COM3 Serial port 1
9 Enabled Disabled Serial port 2
10 Enabled Disabled Parallel port
11 LPT2 LPT1 Parallel port

The two floppy Controller jumpers must be in Enabled position if I want the FDC enabled in my test (One 1.44Mb 3.5" drive). It seems that any of the two jumpers is for swapping the two floppy drives.

The rest of the jumpers are well labeled.
