Yes, this is possible! Check it out:

I have a v1 installed in an A500. What an awesome little gem this is! I do see weird blue dots flickering in Kick Off 2 Final Whistle. Anyone else has similar artefacts?

It seems that German engineering is redesigning the adapter to fit better in A500... more to come.

Meh. Why use surface mount when you have an entire card to work with? I'm drawing my own with through hole components.

I have one of these to assemble, but nowhere seems to have U4 (TLV74333PDBVR) in stock. Is there an alternative part I can use?

You do not actually need U4. You can use the 3.3v generated by the Pi so it is not needed. i released the Gerber files for the A600 on the Github page, tested and works good and is "relatively" easy to solder. I did up a design that will fit in the a500, a1k and a2k. and will release them after a good testing.

I do have a few of these left over so if anyone wants blank or premade let me know. It is too expensive to ship to Europe so probably only good for those people living in N. America.

Wow, looks pretty neat. Cudos for designing it so perfectly around all the nearby chips that almost get in the way.

Thanks for the kind words. I think i have figured out how do slightly modify so there will be no need for the end user to to any soldering

Will take a week to test etc providing i don't get distracted
