Thanks very much Chain, that is GREAT :D

gizmomelb 27 December 2005 06:37

but doesn't include the pinouts for the A500 Trapdoor or A600 Trapdoor...

BinoX 27 December 2005 14:52

Those prove difficult to find unfortunately :(

Also looking for A1200 clockport pinout too now :D

Thanks to you too :D

I couldn't even imagine what you'd need to know to be able to use those pinouts to make something. I've even taken several circuit design/theory classes at college and still would have no idea what to do with this information. :sad Anyone want to give an example of what you can make if you knew the pinouts, obviously you can't make your own accelerator boards, but what simple hardware can be made?

Jope 10 January 2006 10:12

Make your own non-autoconfig RAM board to plug into the amigabus connector?

redblade 12 February 2018 02:52


Any one know what the LAudio and RAudio is used for on the Amiga 600 expansion?? Does it mean you could put a DSP chip in the expansion port? What about the 14mhz clock??

Thanks in advance.

All port, expansion, chip, and external socket pinouts are pretty clear in the schematics for each model:

xArtx 12 February 2018 20:02

The 14MHz_A signal is output directly from Agnus, which will be the master clock frequency divided by two (so not exactly 14MHz, but close).
So basically a separate system clock that may or may not be 180 deg out of phase from the clock the rest of the chips use.

Left and Right are audio outputs. They might be dead ends at the connector, you’d have to check the actual PCB for that.
Some models also have upper address bits labelled at expansion connectors which don’t actually go anywhere.

Yep, memory expansions similar to the original ones back in the day are probably the most obvious use. Perhaps the simplest device you could make for each is based around the RTC or clock port:

- A500 trapdoor: Real-time clock. One chip and a few other components are all that's needed.
- A600 trapdoor: As above for the RTC, but also an A1200-style clock port should be possible using nothing but the required connectors and a board. This would enable the connection of various other peripherals.
- 68000 socket: Accelerators are more complicated, but fast RAM boards are simple enough. Simpler still is the addition of a clock port, though it's more complicated than the A600 trapdoor version because the A500 lacks some necessary signals. Reconstructing these signals (and dealing with the CPU bus) takes a few logic chips, but is simple enough.
- A500 side slot: Basically anything including all of above. A simple project is an add-on Zorro-II slot that lets you connect a Zorro card to the A500. Just requires one chip and a few other parts.

I think if you're looking to start designing peripherals however, perhaps have a look at something more straightforward, like a relay board for the parallel port or something like that. This should get your mind ticking over with possibilities without requiring too much in the way of dealing with RAM, chip selects and other such things.
