      No, the later 1542 (much smaller board, mostly surface mount) uses a different controller. The 1522 is the PIO version and AFAIK all of the 1522s with floppy controllers have controllers that support 128 byte sectors and FM encoding.

      Specifically, you want a controller with the National Semiconductor.

      Thanks,
