As announced in january of this year, delivery of our flickerfixer "Indivision AGA" for the Amiga 4000 (desktop version) and the CD32 has begun this week. In order to start sales worldwide at the same time, we have shipped a few units a little earlier to our partners in the USA. The first customers in the US and Germany have already recieved their pre-ordered board. Delivery to customers in Sweden and England starts today.

Indivision AGA brings the Amiga's graphics output to a modern monitor or flat screen. The user can choose almost any model on the market, because Indivision AGA doesn't only double the frame rate, but even displays a PAL screenmode at more than 60Hz flicker-free. For every screenmode, the full colour depth of 24 bits is displayed.

Indivision AGA is available from our resellers for 129,- EUR(*). We're especially happy to have a new partner in Switzerland. Relec Hardware and Software delivers both versions of Indivision AGA with a French manual.

Indivision ECS under development
The next version of our popular flickerfixer will be made for Amiga models with OCS- and ECS-chipset. Since the older chipsets only work with a colour depth of 12 bits (4096 colours), we're expecting a slightly lower price for this model. It is meant to work with the Amiga models A500, A600(**), A1000, A2000 and A3000. All known technical data will presumably be in Indivision ECS: All screenmodes will be output with more than 60Hz, and the S-Hires modes of the ECS chipset will be displayed in full resolution. Indivision ECS will be installed on the socket of the Denise chip of the target computer. We're expecting the first prototype in about three months.

New memory expansion A603 for A600
In 2006, we already introduced a memory expansion for the smallest of all Amigas, the A600. To our surprise, the demand for this expansion is still high, so we didn't just make a new production run, but made a further development. The new expansion offers 1M of additional chipmem, a real-time clock and a clockport for connection of A1200 expansions. In addition to that, the A603 offers a socket for installing Indivision ECS. The new memory expansion will be available from our resellers before the end of april 2009 for 39,90 EUR(*). For operation of the real-time clock, a coin cell (type CR2032) is required, which is not included. Installing the expansion requires mechanical work on the metal shield of the computer.

Chameleon delayed
The new multi-functional cartridge for the C64 with flickerfixer, memory expansion, floppy-emulation, freezer- and turbo-functionality has experienced multiple changes during recent development that have delayed mass-production. In addition to that, several semiconductor vendors have disappointed us with extremely long delivery times, so we had to make more changes in order to keep quick mass-production possible.
Development of Chameleon is our top priority at the moment and it does not depend on chip delivery times any more. If you want to test Chameleon before it's release, you can do that with the C-One. A Chameleon core is available for free download.

(*) recommended retail price including German sales tax of 19%. Prices at our retail partners may vary. For mail ordering, shipping may be added.
(**) memory expansion A603 required.

WOOT! :pint:

I could use a few of these. The A603, MP3@64, and Indivision ECS would make a nice addition to my (newly repaired and working) A600/'030. :-)

Hey, Jens,

How about plopping a clockport on that ECS Indivision?? ;-)

Better include a pass-through connector (as with Commodore's 2320 flicker fixer).  This way picasso, picollo and few others can work seamlessly.

I preordered the 603 for my A600. Now I just have to wait for the Indivision ECS.

If you wish to use the separate forthcoming product, Indivision ECS on your Amiga 600, you will need the A603 Memory Expansion first to connect it to the A600.

So...

...could I in theory use an Amiga 1200 CPU upgrade on a 600?

And some time ago I dreamed of having The Indivision for the A600... But I never thought it to be possible...

Jens is just so cool

wait till you have to install it - the A600 case is extremely small, the disk drive needs to go in order to make room for Indivision ECS.

Also, the A603 will only fit if you remove or at least modify the metal shield. Installation purely through the trapdoor slot is NOT possible; the computer must be opened.

Many A600s have been shipped without the metal shield, so this is not a big deal, but if you have one of the rare models with metal shield, it's a lot of work to avoid a short circuit.

Great news!

Question: What would the ECS Indivision offer for the A3000 that the onboard SD/FF doesn't?

(I presume better quality, scanlines, new modes?)
