Workstation Card Tech Notes

Firmware Identification

The Worktation card is identified by the low-ASCII letters ATLK at $CnF9. Immediately following is type ID which is as follows:

Type Firmware
$00 Apple IIgs
$01 Apple //e Workstation Card
$02 Apple //e Server card1)
$F0 Card diagnostics are running
$FF Card diagnostics have failed


FIConvertTime Bug

The FIConvertTime call is buggy and can return a ProDOS time that is up to a few minutes incorrect. The IIgs works perfectly.
