After skimming the patent I referenced in the earlier post, I’m starting to come to the realization that in order to have an effective floppy controller, I need to implement a decent PLL which can better track the signal coming in.
Both the floppy controller design guide ( see this post) and the amiga’s controller definitely implements these, but I do not.
In all cases, it seems, at first glance, that this is fairly complicated. And will likely change the whole way I’m bringing the data in. I think this is a good thing, though, and will make for more effective reading of disks.
I’ll have to figure out a way to implement this stuff……………….
