Parceiro (for Amiga 1000) blog post / news
« on: December 16, 2021, 04:59:35 PM »
I finally wrote a little post about the Parceiro 3-in-1 expansion for the Amiga 1000, after having used it for basically all of 2020. Within, I share some news from creator David Dunklee from our most recent chats. Posting the link for those interested.

While it's not exactly breaking news, for those unaware, the Parceiro offers:
  • 8MB of auto configuring “FAST” RAM (the A1000 shipped with just 256K) with zero wait states (thanks to the use of SRAM rather than DRAM)
  • A front-facing microSD card reader supporting a 2GB card (bundled) formatted as a FAT32 volume allowing it to be read/written to on a PC or Mac for moving files, using live in an emulator, etc.
  • A Real-Time Clock (RTC) with onboard battery backup and a driver allowing it to be recognized my AmigaDOS at boot
