This looks great, I would be interested in buying one, even though I don't have an a600. - I have always wanted one though since its the only amiga besides a4000t and a3000t I never owned yet. Besides that they are small and cool...

I'm not interested but if this ever gets to a big and fast FPGA, 060 core with FPU and A1200 version I'd be totally in. Maybe later you can get custom chips done too, alas Natami..

If I may, why is your A600 in Jersey? Are you having work done to it?


I mailed it to Sloopy from AtariAge a couple years ago to have it recapped due to audio issues...

...he has not returned it since.

 In the past he has been fair dealings, but this last time he keeps telling me that he's moved, his daughter has moved in with him, that he hurt his wrist, etc. etc. etc.

btw, this makes me want to call my former girlfriend whom i gave my first a 600 (it was a lovely machine!) when i got an a1200. maybe she has kept it somewhere in the closet..

Project website mentions A500 Version of the FPGA Accelerator.
http://www.majsta.com/modules.php?name=News&file=categories&op=newindex&catid=7
Will the A500 version of the  FPGA Accelerator get produced ?
I ask since I do not own an A600; however, I do have a couple of A500(s).

I'm with you. I already have ACA630 in my A600, so I'm good, but my A500 could use some more speed and RAM. Also, if he could make an IDE port integrated in his design that would be perfect.
A500 KS 2.1, 1MB Chip, 68000
A600 KS 3.1, 2MB Chip, ACA630 32MB RAM
A1000 KS 1.3, 8MB RAM
A1200 KS 3.1, Blizzard IV 50MHz 64MB RAM
A2000 KS 2.1, 68030 25MHz, 6MB RAM
A3000 KS 3.1, 68030 25MHz, 16MB RAM
A4000 KS 3.0, 68040 25MHz, 16MB RAM
CDTV KS 3.1, 4MB RAM

Hi :) Don't get me wrong all of the negative comments are fine by me and i don't take anything regarding that too serious. People can thing and feel whatever they like :)

Regarding Vampire 500. Project is put on hold due to high interest for Vampire 600. At the moment where last testings were performed Vampire 500 had about 8Mips and 8 autoconfig mem(total 64MB) but I had some problems with IDe controller. Code for IDE controller is finished about 90% but didn't have the time to finish it. And Yes this boards will be produced also but it seems in much much larger quantities because demand is even higher than for Vampire 600.

Vampire 500 is on hold until first batch of Vampire 600 is shipped.
Vampire 500 is not question, I guess it is month or two until more news or pre orders. So save your money!
I think that next thing is Vampire 1200 :)
Those accelerators (V600 and V500) have no alterlnative - lowest price - best performance.
Forget about the rest - this is the future for classics - especialy A500 and A600.

One more thing V500 is currently faster than V600 :)


Majsta was faster ;)

So, you are working on V500 with IDE. Thats good, can't wait till it is available.

Majsta is it possible for the user to update the FPGA code? We do actually have an A600 that we don't use much, if it were possible, I could use it to try developing a faster CPU softcore, which I would like to try.

Count me in when you've got an A1200/A3000 version with an 100MHz 060 FPGA. :)
