amigapcb.org/

I don't know who made this but it was linked in a couple of threads and it is totally awesome and deserves a thread for recognition -

http://amigapcb.org/

Click the link to the beta for more motherboard models.

I wonder how it was produced, possible they may have somehow aquired original CAD data?

No, they've just traced photos of the motherboards.

Yep, it's awesome, impressive work and very useful! It's been in my bookmarks for a while now.

There is an "imprint" link showing who did it.

Wasn't hard to find .

Cheers,

Is this a fact or speculation? I realise it's unlikely as the data is probably long lost and in an obscure format if it does exist, but what made me wonder was that the A1200 includes the internal layers and break off PCBs for the mouse port and RTC.

Either way, it's a godsend for repair work.

It's all speculation.

Done by Scrat at a1k.org
http://www.a1k.org/forum/showthread....ight=Scrat+PCB

It is all explained over there in simple plain german.
You cannot 'just' scan the pcbs and get all connections from that picture, what do you think?

Of course you can't, but you can do hard manual labour to recreate the layout.

But now I see that what Scrat has done is based on original PCB CAD layouts. Which means that some older Amiga models may never be supported by AmigaPCB.
