ICD Adram Docs

I have finished fitting a ICD Adram 540 to my A500 Rev 6a. Got it working well with 1MB agnus and it sees the 1MB of chip ram. The rest of the ram on the trapdoor slot does not autoconfig.

From my understanding, the rest of the RAM will only be configured with a addram command that comes on the install disk.

I found the disk on the net but I am looking for the instructions manual and have not found that yet.

Does anyone have a link to the docs?

Thanks

Did the link work for you?

Thanks for your help.

No, you're right, the link is dead!

This is where I found the link:
http://bboah.claunia.com/adram.html
(other information there might be useful).

In the meantime, I'm still searching...

Edit: More Info:

AdRAM 540
If you have an Amiga 500 computer and need more RAM, the AdRAM 540 is the answer. You can add up to four megabytes in the A501 bay. The RAM can be added a half meg at a time to suit your needs. With a Super Agnus, you can easily get one meg of chip RAM, too.

Wow thanks for looking.

I finally decided to ask here since I could not find it. I am surprised it is so hard!

Hi omnicrom10,

I've uploaded the document to the Zone for you!

Also, see this thread for more discussion on the AdRAM 540 memory expansion card:
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=34822

PS. Not so hard, after all!

Google failed me! I saw the link above but did not see links to the actual docs!

This is great!

For the future : you can also find it on the EAB file server (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=43633) in the folder 'Amiga Documentation' (found it via a Lemon thread ).

So AdRam is different than the BaseBoard it appears.

Do you know of the link to the docs for the Baseboard made by Expansion Systems?

Thanks Again.

No, that one has me stumped!

All I have been able to find is another request (posted more than four years ago) for the same thing
Need A500+ and/or Baseboard DOCS

Email sent! Thanks a bunch.

GOT IT.. I added to to the zone for anyone else that might want to get it. How do we get these things added to the Amiga hardware reference sites?!

Good thinking! Email the file to Joerg Brenner at the Amiga hardware Database (joerg at amyx dot de) with an explanation of what it refers to. Thanks.

i thought once the 1mb chip ram mod was done to the main board that the rest of the ram in the trapdoor (anything over the 0.5mb now used as chip) was useless?

On the ICD if you run a wire from JP2-2 to the Gary daughter board then you can get more autoconfig ram past the 1 meg chip.

On the Expansion Systems Baseboard you need a GAL/PAL update to autoconfig the ram with a 1 meg chip system otherwise you have no fast ram on boot and stuff takes up more chip ram than it should. You get the fast ram once you run the program to activate the ram.

I like the ICD a lot better. I had the Expansion Systems back in 93 for my A500 and it worked fine BUT I had to send away for the GAL/PAL update from them. I doubt most people had the updated GAL/PAL and I have no idea how you would get it now.

Hi,

Just picked up a Baseboard minus docs, has anyone still got the PDF mentioned above?

Cheers,
Marc
