This documentation is basically for all three of Gideon's supported hardware [1541 Ultimate II, 1541 Ultimate II+ & Ultimate 64] projects using firmware up to v3.7 (Which is 1.28 on the Ultimate 64).  Anyway, you can find the most current documentation here online.  The reason I put snapshots of it online is because someday (possibly) someone will want to look back and see the progression of this awesome piece of hardware.

zip2 ARM2SID Quick Installation Guide

ARM2SID is a new replacement for 2 Commodore SID music chips and more. ARM2SID is a bigger brother of our well known ARMSID, which is a real "plug & play" solution and fully replaces both the MOS6581 and MOS8580 chips.
ARM2SID comes whenever 2 SID chips are needed, usually for stereo. If you have 2 SID sockets, just place the ARM2SID in the primary socket, SID2 in the secondary socket, connect both of them with the provided 5 or 10 cm cable, configure with the provided C64/C128 utility and go.
If you have just one socket and are not afraid of soldering, you can get even more. Use the provided connector cable, connect the 6 wires to your C64/C128 and you get the 2nd SID for stereo, the 3rd SID for 3SID music and OPL FM synthesis compatible with FM Sound Expander!
Enjoy your ARM2SID!
