Very cool project! I didn't know/remember about this.
Hope will continue well!

Hi gunnar. So this is the board you mentioned for the a500 to eventually be released for other amigas?
Looks sweet! I want one. My a500 needs repair and I just got an a1200 so I can either.

Looks like a great card and hopefully the cpu-core is performing as promised. I hope this comes for sale one day.
Great job, so far, thank you.

The card above mates with a standard fpga card and plugs into a 68000 socket to give an A500/A1000/A2000/CDTV the following:

* Cyclone V fpga allowing for a very fast 68K CPU
* 128 MB DDR3 Fast-memory
* SD-card usable/bootable as IDE-device
* Network interface
* RTG Graphics Card (chunky/Hicolor/truecolor) with DVI/HDMI out

That's the current plan anyway.

Will these be available for end users to buy? Is there a waiting list?

The card is primarily a CPU card. The main SPECs are:
* 128 MB DDR3 Memory 800MHz
* Fastest 68K CPU ever
* MAPROM

The secondary SPECs are:
* SDCard as IDE Disk
* HDMI Video Out (Truecolor)
* Network

We expect the card ready to sell, end of this summer.
The card will be sold as CPU card.


Some additional or optional features we are right now preparing.
We are planning/testing right now:
* buildin AMIGA graphic flickerfixer / scandoubler to view AMIGA signal on HDMI TV
* buildin Chipmemory upgrade
* buildin AGA AMIGA upgrade - turn your A500 into an AGA machine
* buildin SAGA (Super-AGA) upgrade - higher resolutions, more colors, more speed.
* AMIGA PICASSO 96 drivers


I think we will need something like a website for the project.

Looking interesting.
Just curious though, why ddr3? Given the low speed of both the cpu core and ram (relative to modern computing) wouldnt ddr2, or ideally ddr1 be a better match? Given the high latency of ddr3 Id expect the other RAM types to perform better. Is it simply a matter of availability/price?
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

I guess this is what the sockit board provides. We will have to live with it. :-)
I think this roadmap is a realistic plan to give first accel and then replace genuine amiga components piece for piece that results eventually with a standalone alternative system
