1. There is http://www.mscpscsi.com/
2. There are several different Atmels. The 8 bit AVR line, 32 bit AVR32
and 32 bit ARM core based contolers. The later features a DMA engine...
uCLinux runs on the ARM based devices. The AVR32 has a MMU and thus is
capable of running "regular" Linux.
Hell! With an AVR32 on the disk contoler the disk contoler can _emulate_
a VAX or PDP-11 at higer speed then the real CPU in your QBus box!
PATA <=> SATA: SATA is a serial transport for ATAPI and ATAPI is more or
less a subset of SCSI...
I was planning on using an 8-bitter with a couple-K of RAM built-in and
a built-in IDE interface.
