It is source compatible with the 68k it is not truly binary compatible. It means you would have to make minor changes to your 68k assembly code. Obviously this is not possible / practical for the Amiga. It is really only practical to switch to Coldfire if you are a system developer who used to use a 68k for a product and own your source code.

FireBee, MiniMig, FPGArcade and NatAmi are very expensive for their capabilities. Whilst I am glad people are playing in this area. You've got to have deep pockets to want to "play" in this area over using free emulators on a PC or console.

i thought minimig is well cheap for the fun it gives you,and this replay board will give alot more fun too and mor speed memory so i think it will be worth it ,and if you have to buy an 060 accelerator they cost a fortune nowdays.so if you added all up a replay board will be cheap.

I read here about batches of 50 boards. This will imply a lot of waiting of interested Amigans.

Did someone think about checking with ACube Systems? They can build batches of 100 boards every 2 weeks!
Also, they paid Dennis van Weeren for his work on the Minimig so they will certainly do the same for this new product. Every people behind such product should be rewarded.

These are good news indeed.

When would we be able to know the price for a complete package?

FPGA board + daughter board including CPU?


Will they achieve 100mhz?
In general terms, is the AGA core outperforming the original AGA chipset?
I mean, no need for flickerfixer, and implemented chunky mode.

Thanks.

The ATX adapter still connect to the 4 way molex (hard drive connector) - the other end connects to the 20 pin ATX supply.
The adapter boards main job is allow you to turn the PSU on and off with the push button.


The boards come fully assembled to me, the same machine fits all components - including the BGA.

I'm in discussions to build 500 after the next 44, this will happen as soon as the 44 are shifted out and appear to be completely stable.

The 500 batch will be the same board as the current b02 in the 44 batch.
Cost may come down slightly with volume, but I won't be starting them until I have shifted the 44.

Well that was my first post from 20 April 2009, it's been a long time but it's finally on sale

It has RTG. The 24-bit Audio DAC is used by the built-in sound card. It's AHI compatible.
