You might be able to fit them onto the board but I think most would prefer the 2nd MCA for future upgrades as that's the purpose of the board, to enable easy future upgrades

I'd buy one, even though I've got one of the Analogic/fWSi boxes.

I'll leave the 2nd MCA on as i think more people would want to design something with the edge pads on their boards. This board should be able to support the RGB and Stedy's PC keyboard adapter. May be enough for a small RTC circuit.

With all the accelerator boards for the a1200 about, is there any way that a bridgeboard (double male) could be used to take signals from the CD32 using the connector adapter i am making and connect them to the corresponding signal on the accel/fastmem boards/whatever to make for a simple upgrade. A simple bridgeboard adapter would be cheap and so easy to make ?

I think there was someone here posting about this and I think they couldn't get it to work.
Only found this thread: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?...32+accelerator but I kind of remember something more developed, like somebody actually tried something.

yah, my adapter board will have RGB video output and hopefully a PC compatible keyboard plug in so they would not be required

Yes, keyboard and RGB sounds super! Because it will also have a slot for people to create a RAM/IDE board ))

The CD32 already has a connector for big box Amiga keyboards.

Here is a picture of the board i have submitted for manufacture. It will have video and PC keyboard (thanks to Stedy) support on it...



the PS/2 connector will plug in on the underside of the din connector and the RGB/scart cable faces towards the rear

Shame it has gone for manufacture because that would have been much better.
