It is a floppy disk controller that is allegedly very flexible in the
disks that it is capable of reading/writing, given the appropriate driver
software. It is being developed in Germany and is to be made in
configurations to fit Amiga, PC, Atari(?), and others. Purportedly, it
will read/write CBM, Amiga, Atari, PC, Apple IIe and Macintosh, Sinclair,
and possibly others.
