Very nice!

Out of curiosity; will the Vampire500 work with this card?

Considering I got V600, and is in line for the V1200 it doesnt matter a whole lot to me, but it might be of intrest to others.

Probably will work fine!

And, this will work too! http://webstore.kryoflux.com/catalog...56&language=en - and lower price!

@Emufan....... I love that they didn't tease for a year! Just produced and announced it! The way it should be!

C'mon Jens... get with the program and get the Reloaded done! PLEEEEEZE!

When am I going to stop dropping money on Amiga goodies? NEVER!

makes no sense, since i still cannot enter the thread.
even public postings, i'm not allowed to watch attached images. you are a a1k member, right?

about time, eab puts login to HOL, d/l ratio for the ftp and hides the zone even more.
funny, eh?!

OK, I know what you mean... not announcing anywhere but A1K or, keeping everything hidden behind a registered logon.

I am a registered member... it took me about an hour to figure how to register, going back and forth with Google translate, but I finally figured it out. I can logon and kind of translate the pages but Google doesn't do a very good job with A1K for some reason. IIRC I couldn't simply translate the page and register, I had to register on the native page.

Maybe try registering so that you can at least logon.... I would just tell you how to do that but it took me forever to figure it out a few months back...

Translation...........

The Matze and I have made something like this ... This project including the prototype circuit boards was already last year, but was then put back for various reasons and concerns. Among other things, thanks to Gonzo's kick-off with his A2000 board, we have decided (now that we have all the doubts as far as possible) to complete this project

What is "Project Red"?
Project Red is a nearly original replication of the A500 + (Rev 8A) board. The name refers to the selected board color.


The finished prototype board looks like this:


Pedagogical note: I have put away the C = logo in all pictures, since we will be left out in the final version with caution. In the expansion of the memory, we are still not sure whether the dabeibleiben.

Matze has equipped its board (Codename "Red Alert"), the prototype also works:


A few more impressions from the PCB:


Why?
If you ask this question, you are wrong here

What should I do with it?
The board makes itself good as a wall decoration. Or as a replacement board for a battery-eaten original board. Maybe you can exchange it with a pair of socks.

How is it going on?
We will presumably make a second prototype, as we have dealt with some drill holes in the first version (some are too big, others too small). In addition, Matze has changed a few trifles, among other things. The contact strip must be chamfered from the expansion port. In the first prototype we did not make this for cost reasons.

Bulk order?
Yes. We will open a separate thread in due course, but you may already express your interest here. This makes the calculation easier. The collective order is expected to run over the tried and tested platform of halbviervier and only the circuit board, parts you have to take care of itself if necessary.

Update 2016-11-23: Collective order started!

All positions in the web form are optional.
Attention: It's kits!
Appropriate soldering skills and rest are required!

Prices:
40,00 Euro 1 x circuit board A500 Rev.8 red (solo)
60,00 Euro 1 x Small and standard parts kit (new / NOS)
2,50 Euro 1 x video hybrid kit standard incl. Circuit board (black)
Or alternatively: 15,00 EUR Video-Hybrid-Kit with FBAS incl. PCB (black)
9,60 Euro 1 x Set of 8x DRAM 256Kx4 (NOS)
4,50 Euro 1 x RTC MSM6242B OKI (NOS)
16,00 Euro 1 x AGNUS 8375, 2MB (NOS)
4,00 Euro 1 x GARY 5719 (NOS)
5,00 Euro 1 x EPROM 27C400 / 27C800 (with 3.1?)
2,90 Euro 1 x DENISE 8362 OCS (B-Ware)
4,00 Euro 1 x PAULA 8364 (B-Ware)
3,50 Euro 1 x CPU MC68000 (B / C-Ware)
7,00 Euro 2 x CIA8520 (C / D-Ware) of the A500 + needs 2 pieces
13,00 Euro optional 1MB memory extension kit incl. Board (red)
7,00 post-dispatch and packaging basic price

Order :
Orders in self-government via the special web interface
Or even web form. I think this is self-explanatory.
.
-> Web form PCB A500-R8 RED with components
.
After entering the address and number, of course still with one
Review page, will automatically email you with the necessary
Payment Information Shipped.
(If that does not come, the email address was wrong)
So easy ? So easy !
Then please ... do not forget the transfer
At '' difficult '' constellations and / or extensions still
Wait my email.


Further sequence:
We first look at how many sentences are needed
Deadline: 02.12.2016!
Then we order the parts rounded
These are distributed among the diligent helpers
Which in turn create the bags and boxes
These sets are collected centrally and packaged according to your order
Shipped as an assured DHL parcel shipment via ARabbit
Receiving and crafting and looking forward


Finally,
Due to various laws, the following must be stated in advance:
Even if it makes a professional impression. But, here is about one
Private collective order for private projects. Even though we were with best
Knowledge and conscience, with the greatest possible care, the things
Have selected and put together, we can not guarantee
Functionality and scope. Also, we can not accept liability for
Commissioning and consequential damage.

Maybe someone can do a little bit better job, or add a little clarification

Great project indeed. What still isn't clear to me is what is included if you'd buy all parts offered?

I know it comes without Keyboard, FDD and Case. But are the connectors on the back included as well?

We've had a few issues in the past where people have been ripped off and things like that, therefore all sub-forums related to buying or selling things (sorry, I don't have a proper english translation for "Kleinanzeigen") are viewable by registered members only. Plus some of our hardware devs are not too happy if they see their not-for-profit designs appearing on Ebay.

Ok, back to topic

The ordering process may look a little complicated, here's a short explanation:

Position 1 on the order list (I'm referring to the order page here) contains the bare A500+ board only (*without* the A501+ expansion PCB, we've removed that in the final revision)

Position 2 contains all electronic components (without custom chips) and connectors

Position 3 and 4 are two variants of the Video Hybrid ("VIDIOT"), these are DIY clones since the original VIDIOT's are probably not available anymore, You'll need only one of these.

Position 5 contains DRAM memory chips, these are required too.

Position 6 is the real time clock chip. The board runs without it, but you'll probably want one.

Positions 8 to 14 are custom chips. We ask people to check their own stock first and not to order any surplus parts here since these chips are getting rare. Some of these chips are of B-grade quality with scratches and/or bent pins.

Position 15 is a DIY kit for an 1Meg RAM expansion (like A501+ but much smaller and cheaper)

Positions 16 to 18 are PLCC variants of custom chips with DIP adapter PCBs.



I hope that things are a litlle bit clearer now.

Please keep a few things in mind before ordering...
- This is a DIY kit, you'll have to solder everything by yourself
- It will take some time and patience to assemble
- some parts are not available in large quantities, therefore we cannot provide hundreds of DIY kits

This is brilliant, congrats.
I would order right away if I had the soldering skills needed, but I don't have any... I also have some spare custom chips. Maybe I should order it anyway and try.

What's the difference between the two Video Hybrids (normal/FBAS)?

Edit: I found that FBAS is 'Farb-Bild-Austast-Synchron-Signal' so I guess the expensive one has a color Composite output and the normal is B/W?

Most likely that. Actually that's rather interesting. I haven't seen composite hybrids for sale before. Another A1k innovation that I've not known about, because I didn't learn enough German in school?

I think this is a quite cool project and since I have a 500+ with severe battery damage that I had almost given up on fixing, I just ordered one of these kits. Much more fun soldering together new stuff than fixing corroded vias and traces. And besides, when I get my hands on a Vampire 500, it needs a good home.

Awesome project!

So we need to register on a1k to order/pre-order?
