This is a very neat half-height module. It is quick and easy to build, looks great in black, and works well.
The module has flexible address selection which can be set to be totally compatible with the official RC2014 compact flash module. It also suffers the same address echo as the RC204 module. Other than the one address echo, the address decoding is nice and tight.
The compact flash card sits much higher than the official RC2014 compact flash module, primarily due to the use of a low-cost, off-the-shelf adapter board. The big advantage of this approach is that no fine pitch soldering is required.
A busy LED shows when the compact flash card is being accessed.
