WANTED: hardware and documentation
 
Hardware and documentation wanted for emulation improvement purposes and AROS m68k development (or something, as usual, improvements may happen years later..). Will pay but don't ask anything crazy or I will reply something more or less fun :)

20.03.2016 update

Hardware:

- SX32 or similar CD32 HD/floppy expansion (NEW!).

- A4000T

- CD32 MPEG cartridge.

- Freezer cartridges [more info in other threads..]

- Other A500 side expansion hardware (?)

"Got recently":

- A3000/A4000 Zorro/PCI bridge. (Prometheus)
- A590
- A4000 [Big thanks to Arnljot for selling one and also loaning CSPPC for AROS m68k testing!]. (2x A4000 actually)
- SupraTurbo 28
- GVP A530/8M
- Hurricane H530 and Apollo 520.
- External HD floppy drive (special 150RPM drive) [have XL and A3000 internal HD drive]
- A3000UX (2M+16M, "old" SuperBuster/DMAC/RAMSEY, updated SCSI chip) + tapedrive (thanks Tim!)
- A1000 [A1000 Agnus most likely has some undocumented differences](thanks Jope :) I really have this now)
- Blizzard 1230/1240/1260 SCSI-Kit IV (SCSI add-on) [replace current IDE CF with SCSI-IDE+CF for better performance] (from local auction site)
- External floppy drive with built-in track display
- Warp Engine 68040/40MHz
- Another CD32.. (has extra chip on CDROM controller PCB)
- PCMCIA SRAM Card (4M)
- All 3rd edition RKRMs
- A4091

"Always wanted but have already:"

- A500+ with 1MB trapdoor RAM expansion
- CD32 [1]
- CDTV #1, 2M chip [1], 8M fast, internal CDTV SCSI adapter + SCSI-IDE bridge + CF, 2-port joystick adapter.
- Supradrive 500XP
- A570

[1] donated by Cloanto.

Other Amiga hardware I already have:

- A500 (OCS and ECS. Someone should build Agnus-switcher :D), main testing Amigas.
- A1200 + Blizzard 1260 + CF in IDE-port, AGA-testing Amiga.
- CDTV #2 ("spare") [available for swap/sale in future]
- AmiTrix SCSI-TV CDTV SCSI adapter (never used, came with another CDTV. CDTV #1 adapter is different model) [available for swap/sale in future]
- CDTV floppy drive

I may be able to help - I think I got a supraturbo somewhere - but I'm not sure!

It will be friday evening before i get a chance to look!

Hi Toni, it's difficult to find the CL450 datasheet, but I did find the CL480 datasheet: http://www.datasheet4u.com/html/C/L/...Logic.pdf.html (Click on 'DataSheet View' to download the PDF file to your computer ;))
I quote "The one key difference between C-Cube's CL450 and CL480 is that the latter filters video during scaling. All else being equal, the CL480 will produce higher quality, full screen video." (Source: http://www.doceo.com/myweb2/articles/mpegbord.html) :D

I thought I said "Must be CL-450 datasheet" :)

CL450 is video decoder ONLY and only accept video data

CL480 also includes audio decoder and accepts full mpeg stream. (includes demultiplexer and also direct CD interface)

= CL-450 needs totally different input data than CL-480.

Great. I had one but it was sold ages ago :(

Rabbit80 15 August 2008 19:47

:crying:crying I just looked in my attic for my miggy stuff and its GONE...

The Mrs had a clear out a couple of months ago and binned it since "I hadn't used it for years! " :crying:crying

Sorry Toni - no SupraTurbo :(

Hi Toni,

As the A4091 is pretty much implemented on the A4000T, would the A4000T schematics be useful to you for the scsi chip/rom connections and PCB layout stuff?

If so, I can upload them to the zone for you, although the scan quality is not great.

Regards


Rich

If you can see chip pin numbers.. I have A4000T schematics that are unreadable..

Amiga shop
 
Maybe there is something here?
http://www.datakompaniet.no/

Type amiga where is says "søk" and press "søk".

I believe I have the ROM Kernel Reference Manual: Libraries 3rd edition, let me go check, in the meantime; if I do have the manual, where do I send it?

I just found this: http://www-kryo.desy.de/documents/vx...10Lib.html#top it is the
NCR 53C710 SCSI I/O Processor Programming Guide, VxWorks Programmer's Guide: I/O System on-line. Not sure if that is what you need though.

This looks useless :)

Send my the reference manuals, i will scan and ocr them into PDF for all!

Yeah - thought so - had to be sure though;)...

still digging out my shed looking for that manual, I guess its buried further than I thought, wish me luck!

If this external HD floppy drive is of any use I may be able to get it for you.
I also have a 1MB SRAM card set as RAM. I need to check it still works though.

Just a note that Symbios is now LSI Logic for some time now.

I do have an C= A4091 and a PCMCIA SRAM card that I can lend. Neither is being used right now but I would like them back. Any idea on how long you'd need them?

Can you post this in separate thread, thanks, going to cleanup this soon.. (btw, those manuals are BIG and HEAVY, mailing those to other countries won't be cheap :()

HD Externel drive would be nice. Contact via email about price etc, thanks.

SRAM card is good enough for me too, thanks :)

I noticed. I guess all old documentation is completely gone by now except if some driver developer somewhere still have one..

1 month max I guess (depends how busy I am) but I'd prefer something I can accidentally destroy :) Non-working A4091 should be fine too (going to update first post)

Hi,
I missed out on the HD disk drive. If anyone finds another on ebay or has one let me know please.

Toni Wilen 07 November 2008 19:55

List updated, thanks to everyone who sent me nice and interesting stuff :)

Maybe CD32 V3 or V4 schematics helps, pinout of the expansion-slot is there, no schematics for MPEG cartridge itself though...
