Amiga A1100 motherboard

Hello, a friend of mine "Miguel Fides", in collaboration with "Edu Arana", have worked for years on the reproduction of a board compatible with the A1000 case. I am the person who has been beta tester of the proyect, testing hundreds of demos, games, programs and additional hardware.

At first it was just an amateur project without any profit or sale, but we have noticed a lot of interest in the community and we are thinking that maybe we can make a launch for those interested.

This is the webpage we have created for the proyect:

http://a1100.arananet.net

If you are really interested you can write to us in the mail of the page and we will communicate the price to you when we have all the clear aspects.

If you have any questions about the board or the project, you can write your doubts in this same thread that I will review answering as I can.

best regards

Estrayk.

Looks excellent, nice work! I have a temperamental A1000 right now that I'd like to fix rather than replace the mobo, however this looks a good option....

Would be nice to see. You should take out the negative sounding "rotten" describing an older A1000"s condition. Probably a second language thing I assume.

Looks very good. I like the A1200 expansion connector.

For a long time you've been able to buy the Phoenix A1000 motherboard but it has fewer features than this.

Won't it be very hard to find an available Agnus chip? Even if so, super expensive?

All we need now is for A1200.net to produce a new A1000 case ;-)

Hi all, we are really surprised how many people are showing interest via e-mail about the motherboard. We are going to manufacture 10 boards for the closest friends to test and we can really see the manufacturing times and other aspects related to logistics and production.

soon I will send an email to people who have declared a formal interest via email with more information.

meanwhile, we continue to test all aspects of the board to avoid future surprises of incompatibilities with acel cards, serial & parallel devices, floppy drives, monitors ... the Paula sounds great and clear too:

I have sent an email to everyone who has expressing a formal interest, saying that before making a big launch for everyone, we have decided to make 10 units for a small community in a Spanish forum for betatesting.
Once these 10 boards have been sent to our beta testers, we will proceed to send more information to international interested people. This is helping us to better understand the delivery times and circumstances that may occur when we place a big order. I leave you some photos of the motherboards that we have already received for the testers.

I have a sleeve of 8375s (318069-19.) Apparently useless as this is the A3000 model.

I notice the MB has a 68020 spot. Wouldn't it be better to have an 68030 since it is is nearly compatible?

The 030 can go in the a1200 trapdoor slot ;-)

I would have preferred it socked on the MB with full 32-bit access to all the memory directly! Leave the slot for 040/060 and FPGA upgrades!

Amiga A1100 motherboard

The board is now very nice in black finish...

Has something been made to centre the DB15 vidéo port and the DB9 RS232 inside their back plate holes ?
