Hi Toni,

well - it's neither a SupraTurbo 28 nor an internal A500 turbo card but if you can use it you can have my Apollo 520.

It's a nice addon - but I burnt mine... Minus point that it uses Zip ram.

Looks good enough (having MMU would have been great but faster CPU than 68000 will always help in some tests)

If I understood correctly, this connects to A500 side expansion and has pass-through connector?

It's actually the user's manual, not the datasheet. And the errata. Datasheet is still missing, but having the user's manual is better than having the datasheet anyhow.

Glad to be of service. If there's anything I dislike, it's undocumented chips.

Toni,

I have the schematics for the CD32 FMV module. Will scan them in and put them online this weekend. They were caught up in a large pile of CD32 docs/schematics I purchased 7 years ago, only just found them.

Will update the thread when the information is available.

Ian

Great, thanks.

Looks like there is nothing special except that PLD used for address decoding (mostly known already) and interrupt/status control. No more surprises left, emulation will be done someday...

Unfortunately there is nothing interesting to emulate, only need to read chip datasheets and emulate required parts, use OS built-in codecs to decode sound and video and finally emulate some genlock features..

Painfully boring but it needs to be done! (and final result most likely will have crappy sound and video sync)

I have a Supra-something RAM board that connects to the side of the A500 at home. Not sure what its name is, but it does add 2 or 4 MB of ram to the A500 (again, not sure). I know it is a "bit" wobbly, since I had to use ducktape to glue it more firmly to the A500. Is that anything interesting for you Toni ? I am almost 100% sure it is RAM only, no accelerator, no hd stuff...

edit: I think it might be this thing: http://www.bboah.com/index.php?actio...189&artlang=en

Hurricane H530 (A500 68030 accelerator) arrived few days ago. Big thanks to Martijn!

Unfortunately it seems Supradrive 500XP sucks too much (latest AMAB6 ROM) and fails to work with any 68020+ accelerator, freeze at boot (same problem with Apollo 520)

Toni, you didn't say if you want the SupraRAM 500RX side-card for A500 ?

Sorry, I forgot.. No, I don't need one because fast RAM expansion comes with hd controller and/or accelerator.

A1000 0xc00000 ("slow ram"/"ranger") address space mapped memory expansion would be nice

Hi Toni!

I have a a570, if you still need it? It's originally from UK, but the mains power outlet has changed to euro-model. I'm not sure if the lens is working, because I don't have an a500 to test it... It's boxed and comes with several PD-cdroms and with caddy.

No, I don't need it. (A570 is listed in "already have" list)

Seems that You not want this but anyway maybe is nice to not loose:
probably patent for Akiko or at least for their C2P converter: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/5461680.html

probably patent for A2024 - decoder part with PAL equations so almost ready to rebuild :
http://www.freepatentsonline.com/EP0298243B1.html

I think both patents are the missed ones - never saw them listed on any Amiga related patent list.

Also this one is probably related to the CD32 and Akiko:

Sure you don't want a Video Toaster 4000 card Toni? Or at least some developer docs for it?

I haven't seen this either but unfortunately quite useless today. (thats a lots of gates wasted for mostly useless C2P hardware..)

A2024 operation is already known and A2024 emulation display "filter" is planned in future.. (does someome really want to build one? )

That one would have helped about a year ago but not anymore
