That sounds reasonable, yes the PMAD's have 128 kB on-board memory.

That sounds pretty familiar before Harald got the PMAX-LANCE working.

Well the gap scheme has to be set according to the TURBOchannel dma
datatransfer scheme... The PMAX version is set up according the IOASIC
scheme, which needs the sucking pointer array set-up. Perhaps ask Harald
what he smoked when he got the PMAX-LANCE working, I gave up smoking.
