Product Description
The ICP SATA/PATA Adapter is a plug-in adapter for PATA hard disk drives (parallel
ATA, sometimes called UDMA or IDE hard disk drives). It contains a so-called I/O
translator which translates the PATA signals of a hard disk drive into SATA (Serial ATA).
Note: The ICP SATA/PATA Adapter is designed for the connection to an ICP SATA RAID
Controller alone. It supports only PATA hard disk drives and no other PATA devices like
CD-ROM drives or CD-RW drives.
1.2
Scope of Delivery
Together with the ICP SATA/PATA Adapter you receive a so called Y-power cable which
allows to supply both the ICP SATA/PATA Adapter and an appropriate PATA hard disk
with power from your computers power supply using a standard 4-pin power connection.

Warnings and Cautions
This guide should be used by qualified technical personnel with experience installing and
configuring computer components.
Read and adhere to all warnings, cautions, and notices in this guide.
Warnings
• The connection of a non-shielded equipment interface cable to this equipment will
invalidate the CE certification of this device and may cause interference levels that
exceed the limits established by the CE for this equipment. It is the responsibility of the
user to obtain and use a shielded equipment interface cable with this device. If the
equipment has more than one interface connector, do not leave cables connected to
unused interfaces unless otherwise instructed to do so in the user manual.
• Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could void the
user's authority to operate the equipment.

Installation Procedures
Warning: Shock hazards may be present inside the computer in which this controller is being
installed. Disconnect all power cords to the computer before the removal of any
covers.
Follow the warnings noted in your computer’s user manual before installing this board.
ONLY after reinstallation of all the covers should you reconnect the power cords and
power-up the computer.
Note: Take precautions to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage before handling the
hard disks, ICP RAID Controllers and the ICP SATA/PATA Adapter.
3.1.1
Hardware Requirements
• GDT8546RZ or comparable ICP RAID Controller with SATA connectors
• PATA (IDE) Ultra DMA hard disk (UDMA 4 = 66,7 MB/s, UDMA5 = 100 MB/s,
UDMA 6 = 133 MB/s)

3.1.2
Installation of the ICP SATA/PATA Adapter
1. Plug the SATA/PATA Adapter to the hard disk as shown in Figure 3-2.
Note: The hard disk must be set as master (recommended) or to CSL (’Cable Select’). Usually
you will find the information about how to set the corresponding jumpers on a sticker on
the hard disk itself or within the hard disks manual.
Warning: Please use the correction orientation while connecting the adapter. If the adapter is
connected the wrong way, this may cause serious damage to the adapter or the
hard disk drive!
2. Then, connect the SATA cable to the SATA connector of the ICP SATA/PATA Adapter.
3. At least, connect the power cable to the power connector of the ICP SATA/PATA
Adapter (small power connector) and to the PATA hard disk drives (large connector).
The Y-power cable then needs to be connected to a power cable from the power
supply.
Note: The ATA hard disk, the SATA I/O cable and the power cord are coded, that means they
only fit in one way to the connector of the ICP SATA/PATA Adapter.
