Hello dear Amigan's :grouphug:
Many of You know me as a retro computer enthusiast,
I’m spending my free time building retro computer related hardware for a big range of computers, making them more powerful and comfortable to use.
After one year of building Terrible Fire’s TF530 accelerator cards designed by plasmab (http://eab.abime.net/member.php?u=57967) (aka Stephen Leary) from Glasgow, i decided to build something new, maybe more powerful and with more RAM on it..
Was looking a while, and stumbled on a 68030 TK Accelerator card, designed by Matze (http://www.a1k.org/forum/member.php?u=2351) (aka Matthias Heinrichs) located in Germany.
This accelerator card has 4MB/64MB of RAM, DMA, buffered IDE, works perfectly in A500, A1000 and A2k
(actually, that was the reason for me to start building it).
Offering 4MB Version ONLY at the moment,
please DO NOT declare interest for 64MB, it wasn't released officially yet!

As Matze has opened he’s accelerator card sources – everyone is welcome to build these cards.
All information about can be found on Github (https://github.com/MHeinrichs). It’s free for non-commercial purposes.

While TF530 was A500 oriented (also works on A1000. A2000 is also partially supported) - 68030 TK was designed for all Amiga’s with 68k DIP Socket.
Have build first card with 4MB of RAM and i must admit this accelerator works very good!
https://s7.postimg.cc/pxigxs31n/20180420_215351.jpg
https://s7.postimg.cc/8wzkp6q17/20180420_215747.jpg
https://s7.postimg.cc/lbmcpnufv/20180421_150703.jpg

This 4MB RAM part fits also Harms Professional 030 accelerator card, making it working with autoconfig SRAM and IDE (needs 2waitstates/RAM and 2waitstates/IDE Firmware! ), so it's very interesting for persons having Harms 030 without RAM Board!
Has powered PIN20 on IDE, this is need ed for DOM's and CF Cards!

I have ordered 10 cards in total, and I will offer these for sale, as I don’t need all of them anyway, just one or maybe two..
There is same small problem like all other accelerators have – an additional relocator is needed to be able to close housing properly.
Some of You has purchased Kippers relocator clone from me - this relocator fits perfectly
For A500/A500+:

https://s7.postimg.cc/ojqu2itij/20180428_185257.jpg

Using this card in A1000:
139566

Also A2000 need a Relocator, its also designed by Matze,
it has an IDE and clockport on it what gives interesting possibility to expand our A2000 even more!
139565


will be glad to discuss here any information this accelerator related. Please feel free to ask!

About selling:
offer some cards here based on same rules i did for TF530:
1. Cards will be offered in sets with all necessary, relocator boards included for: A500/A1000/A2000
2. i am responsible for the card i have built, and I will try to help solving issues if You have any,
however, You need to understand that this is pure hobby project, rather than a ready to use commercial product with warranty and full support
3. Price for accelerator boards sold thru this forum will have a donation (5€) for forum needs – we will keep this place alive.

Asking 175€ 185€
SORRY, NEED TO ADJUST THE PRICE, BECAUSE DIGIKEY/MOUSER DOUBLED THEIR PRICES FOR CPLDS AND RAM
for ready built and tested 68030 TK (50Mhz), with 4MB RAM card, A500/A1000 relocator and CF Card adapter
A2000 version will change the owner for185€ 195€
PayPal as a friend/family or add 4% to cover fees
Also IBAN payment is accepted
Postage fees for all versions are 7,00€ to any country (tracked & insured)
4,99€ to Germany

I am interested in one. Keep me in the loop please.
will it be used in A500 or A2000?
Can offer 4MB version currently, have some trouble to source parts for 64MB, so it is not tested yet..

Wow! Wasn't prepared for so much interest.. Seems that i am sold out for now. All 8 cards i've planned to sell - are reserved..
As mentioned above - 64MB Version is not ready! I can only offer 4MB Version, it's tested and works excellent in A500, A1000 and A2000. Does autoconfig Zorro II cards correctly and DMA works like it should.
I just started to build 64MB Part: 1x with XC95288 and 1x with XC95144XL..
https://s7.postimg.cc/o9nwwt1ob/2018-04-29_17.36.56.jpg
Last one is already flashed, waiting for RAM chips and other parts. The best part of this Accelerator - You can actually have both RAM cards! lol these are just plug & play!

@Hal & Niezgodka
indeed, this accelerator is working fine in A1000, however, it isn't Plug & Play on it!
You need to have soldering skills to be able to install it because of Kickstart! You need KS 3.1 to boot from IDE..If You have ROM Chips soldered on the motherboard - You'll have to desolder them, and it is not easy doable job, if You have not done it before. Of course, You can cut these IC's out, but who will butcher he's A1000 like that?
Here is an explanation of our forum member EzdineG:

@scrappysphinx

It's probably gonna be no, but do you reckon this will fit in the CDTV and still be able to put the lid on?
personally i don't see any problem to install this card in to CDTV as there is enough space. IT WILL FIT!
However, as i said You before - it will NOT boot from CD!

Hal
29th April 2018, 19:53
@DjCook yes I know. I have KS adapter with KS 3.1 installed in my A1000. 3 years ago I've made a small batch just for myself, and the remaining 9 ones I've sold in this forum https://arekneubauer.com/en/projects/amiga-1000-kickstart-adapter-with-bootselector

I currently have one of MKL's ide+8mb ram boards in the 68000 slot of the cdtv with a 1.3/3.1 dual rom and it autoboots from hdd fine when using the 3.1 rom. When using the 1.3 rom it boots as a standard cdtv.

It would be awesome to fit one of these 030 boards in there and i assume it would work the same way?

I will be interested in a 64mb board when available

I'm also interested, but I would like hear some actual opinions about this card with CDTV.

It will not boot from CD? Do I need to disable CDTV's extended roms? Or it just doesn't boot from CD? Does CD-drive work even, if it's not bootable?

Is it so that 4mb version is without separate memory module? or is there a 4mb and 64mb memory modules?

Wallbraker
29th April 2018, 22:47
So since he hasn't listed a price aren't all of the declared interest void?

DjCook
29th April 2018, 23:17
I see these messages as a placeholder for the interested persons. Since all are waiting for 64MB version only wich isn't built and tested yet - i will skip them if someone orders 4MB one - all spares necessary are here already.
The problem is that some parts on 64MB board are unavailable. I have contacted someone who is able to ship these chips to me, will see will i get them or not..

I have posted a link to Matzes Github in the first post of this thread, so persons with soldering skills can build their own cards. Will be happy to help.
Refards,

Ok I’ll put my name down for 1 x 4mb version and 1 x 64mb version if this helps your list for costing to manufacture

DjCook
29th April 2018, 23:31
You can have 68030 TK with 4MB now, and grab 64MB addon later ;) swapping them out is very easy lol cause RAM/IDE part is detachable

timtheloon
29th April 2018, 23:34
Ok DJCook your the boss lol but one is for an A500 and the other is for an A2000 and has you said I’ll go for the 64mb upgrades when you have sourced parts for them

Ok Community :grouphug:,
coming up with following news:
1. have contacted Matthias - he allowed me to offer he's cards here. We have reached an agreement that i am responsible for the cards i've built, and i will give support for them. Need to say, i'm really happy that this was sorted and i can start shipping cards for the persons who are interested to get 4MB version.
2. According to the info i got from 1k.org - 64MB RAM part wasn't released oficially, it's still in developement (there is an error on PCB that needs to be corrected with flywire: not sexy, i know, but it works at least! will build and help to debug as much i can. Will also offer these if all works as it should.
3. have sourced all parts for 64 MB - ordered, waiting to arrive to build, and tests can begin!
4. New A1000 relocator is needed, the one i have will not fit, have started to build a new one hope to finish it tomorrow
5. have done final calculations for parts including shipping, my work, A500 relocator, soldering materials, etc, etc.. final price for A500/A1000 version is 175€ i hope, RAM price will not rise too quick, as it was with TF530 SRAM's, and i will be able to offer this price constantly. A2000 version will be a 185€ because of relocator, it is huge, also postage fees for A2000 will be more than A500/A1000 - because it exceeds allowed dimesnions and need to be sent as a parcel. We can discuss part prices - it is allowed by forum rules, if someone can offer cheap spare parts to me - please let me know, i will be glad to go lower with final price then. Most expensive are:
CPU: 68030/50Mhz 30€
SRAM: 27€+shipping (DigiKey)
Lattice cpld: 12€+shipping (DigiKey)
Two 4-layer boards 14€
CPU socket: 10€
Xilinx cpld: 9,70€

Forgot to mention before - will add this info on the front page: This 4MB RAM part fits also Harms Professional 030, making it working with autoconfig SRAM and IDE (needs 2waitstates for RAM and 2waitstates IDE Firmware! ), so it is very interesting for persons having Harms 030 without RAM Board!

Here is the List of Users who declared interest in that card. I will contact each person with PM and ask about purchase. As i currently able to supply 4MB version only - need to sort out is the person still interested or not.


PayPal as a friend/family or add 4% to cover fees
Also IBAN payment is accepted
Postage fees for A500/A1000 versions are 6,50€ to any country (tracked & insured)
Waiting for A2000 delivery to be able to calculate correct postage fees

Viktor, does the A1000 relocator need to be modified due to space, or does it not work at all? I was planning on building myself one of these accelerators and using the same relocator that worked with the TF530. I can redesign it if I need to.

Let me know what needs to be done here. I’d like to have a relocator that works for both.

Thanks!

Hello EzdineG,
yes, indeed, need to be redrawn because of space, your relocator works fine, but doesn't allow to close the case..

https://s14.postimg.cc/49yj8v2n5/IMG-20180429-_WA0089.jpg

As You see - we need to move it to the right side also a little bit backwards like this:
https://s14.postimg.cc/5c8prio29/2018-05-01_06.44.19.png

This position will allow tou use it for both accelerators: TF530 and 68030 TK then. I will send You PM with dinensions.

So if i got You right, You are still interested?
Please confirm..
Continue to test this accelerator, to be sure there are no "surprises". Have finished to build Trapdoor expansion with GARY adapter. This hardware expands ChipRam on stock A500 to 1MB and gives additional 1.5MB of Slow ram. Was very exited to test it, and here we are:

Not sure what do You mean.. Are You interested in CPU/FPU part only? It will work, but it will NOT give any acceleretion without RAM part - it will work with default 7Mhz as a stock 68k..
A1000 relocators will be done this week.
A2000 relocators arrived today:

very interesting project :)

do you by the way is the A2000 will work with a Vampire 2 V500+?

I am pretty sure this relocator will work with Vampire, even more, this relocator was designed to support as many accelerators as possible. That's why it has such headers like INT2, INT6, OVR, CDIS, BOSS...

Not sure what do You mean.. Are You interested in CPU/FPU part only? It will work, but it will NOT give any acceleretion without RAM part - it will work with default 7Mhz as a stock 68k..

I looked at the first post which has pictures of the accelerator and IDE/ram add-on. I noticed its a 40pin IDE cable. How are you providing power to your memory card for the IDE? Are you using an external power supply or are you grabbing it from the floppy drive power port? I have a special floppy drive power cable that splits off to molex. It was installed in one of my amiga 500's I think to rob power from the floppy power port while still supplying power to the floppy. Could I use that? I guess I cant think of a reason why I cant use that. The nice thing about 2.5 inch ide ports is power is supplied from the accelerator card then over the 2.5 cable. Thanks for any ideas.

This 40pin IDE Controller has a powered Pin20. Many DOM's or CF adapters offer Pin 20 as a power source.

On the first photo You can see an external power cable because IDE fuse is missing (Matze placed a 2512 Fuse here wich is quite hard to find), at the moment i've shoot this picture i didn't had it, now these are arrived and an external power cable isn't needed anymore if Your IDE device can obtain power from pin 20 - almost all DOM's and CF adapters can do it, where real hard drives can't - so You'll still need this cable if you planning to use real hard drive

Possible Issues:
1. You'll need to use some spacers to aquire hight needed
2. Commodore used different Floppy drive models, there are at least two models as i know, there is a small problem with one of them - as it is a bit longer, as the first one, in case You have this Floppy drive - You just need to file up a small piece of relocators corner and it will fit nice.
3. Commodore used some unusual floppy cable connectors, it is possible that connector for the board is too high - just swap this one out to a standard one, or grab a cable from PC floppy instread of one You have.

"A1000 Relocators are arrived, was tested - all fits nice and works as it should" cool. So I'm back in the game. Maybe I was not paying enough attention but I wasn't expecting those relocators to be A1000 KS adapters with kick rom switch as well. This is even cooler now:)

21st May 2018, 20:30
Yes, Hal, You are next after timtheloon if he is ready to grab one, if he decides to skip - You are next :)
indeed, these relocators have a KS adaptor, this is needed to be able to boot from IDE. Even better, as it has two sockets for Kickstarts, for example 1.3 / 3.1, or let's say: DiagROM /3.1, or anything else.
The idea behind it - is to keep A1000 stock with KS 1.3, for example (You wil need to boot from floppy then, Fastmem will be recognised though), and adding this rocket power 68030 TK with KS 3.1 to our A1000

Just replying in this thread to say this card is amazing. Im extremely happy with it. Using it in a 1meg A500 with the keyboard disk light hard drive mod (disk light flashes for HD activity and floppy). Note get a smaller trapdoor 512k card and route the CF adapter out the trap door. Its hard to get the IDE cable folded correct to get it out the expansion slot plus when you do that you often bring it over the CPU causing heat. Look at the screenshots for specs. Almost 11megabyte/sec disk speed and 11.31MIPS/10838Dhrystones. This is faster then the aca1233n in my A1200. Cant wait till the 64meg memory option comes out (if it does).

Just sharing. Thanks for building these cards!

The card was safely packed and arrived me a few weeks ago. I was so busy that there wasn't enough time to get in touch with this beaty :D
The soldering work was made very professional - my compliments! My soldering skills are far away from this ;)
Card is working like a charm. It's faster than a B1230MK4 and the IDE Controller is outstanding - allthough it is a bit bitchy with some of my CF cards - but that isn't your fault.
Leaving postive feedback :D

Yes, i am using 40Mhz CPU's with slight overclock, "C" can be overclocked till 60Mhz without any problems, don't even need any passive cooler, also FPU can run @70Mhz just fine, however, RAM stops working correctly @60Mhz, so yeah...50Mhz is stable and fast enouh :)
Of course You can use 50Mhz caramic chips, all CPU's are socketed, but it isn't necessary, as this brings no difference - all cards running rock solid.. If You are worried - You can stick a passive cooler on top:

You can do it any time, however, be careful - as there are a lot of fakes and rebranded ones out there, for example 33Mhz or 25Mhz chips are rebranded as 50Mhz.. These will not work - you will need to swap the oscillator to make them run..

.. It's good that capable people like you exist in the retro scene =)
Thank You very much for kind words and supporting my passion, it’s fun, and i really like it!

Interested in one for the A2000 when you have the creases ironed out on your test rig. Enjoy your summer break.
Ok, will see what can i do to speed up Your quote :)


About 68030TK on A2000 (using CPU Slot Cards/Adaptors):
As reported previously - have started to test 68030TK Accelerators on A2k, it doesen't worked perfectly, so needed more time to understand what is going on and where these errors come from. As mentioned before - my CPU Slot was the culprit, have built many Vampire/TF530 Relocators in the past, tested them on my A2k before these was shipped, so CPU Slot was a bit loose and worn / made bad contact with CPU Slot card – this caused crashes in WHDLoad games and other stability issues. Swapped out edge connector to high quality one - and there was not a single crash/reboot since then.

Well, as You may know 68030TK can be installed on A2k Amiga in two ways:


In standard 68k Socket
In CPU Slot Adaptor/relocator

I’ve tried both positions and must admit both are ok, and card is running absolutely perfect. As for me – I prefer CPU Slot over 68k because:
there is better air circulation,
I need free space under the floppy drive as I’ve also expanded my ChipRAM to 2MB using Megachip (have some of them for sell – just ask me, if You are interested)



CPU Slotcard features:
CPU Slot adapter adds some nice features to the A2k Amigas, like additional IDE port, Clock port, an additional power socket.. Of course it can be used as standalone board or in bundle with some accelerators. Just keep in mind, this IDE has no bootrom, it means that it can’t be used to boot Your Amiga out of the box! (since I had installed it with my TK card – i've booted from it, but i wanted to install additional drive for file backups, so there are following possibilities to let it work:


Mount this drive manually each time You boot your Miga
Create Mountlist and let Amiga mount IDE automatically
Add ide.device driver into Kickstart using Patch (with help of Remus software, this will make IDE Port bootable)

Of course I have tested IDE port thoroughly and it works as it should. i will include this ide.device driver to each CPU Slot card i sell, so no worries here.


A2k Clockport:
Atm this is the only thing that wasn’t tested, still haven’t found any hardware to do it, so please feel free to add Your suggestions how this can be done..

also decided to build some Low-End cards based on 020 CPU's, this cards will have 9.5MB of RAM, so these are perfect for WHDLoad games.. info will follow soon

Curious if you are planning on making any TK-68EC020 cards?

Jup! ;)
Boards are on the way to me, all parts are here :)
Board works with 8MB FastRAM and 1.5MB ROM overlayCan you tell us anything more? That's a Maprom.function yes? What MHz? Is there any disable function? SPI ??

Can you tell us anything more? That's a Maprom.function yes?
Momory area configuration is flexible, it has four profiles:
8MB + 1,5MB Ranger + 1.5MB A0-B8 +ROM-Overlay (Total 11MB+1.5Mb FakeROM)
6MB + 1,5MB Ranger + 1.5MB A0-B8 +ROM-Overlay (Total 9MB+1.5Mb FakeROM)
8MB only
Nomem/Off

What MHz?
Runs @ 25Mhz with 5MFlops, 5.3MB/s IDE

Is there any disable function? SPI ??
no, it's Low End Card

I'm interested in 1, depending on status for the project and if it will work with what i have in my A2K all ready.
I have an A2000 with a GVP HC+8 that has 8 mb of fastram on it, i also have a ide4-zorro2 card and at some point i'll be looking for a gfx card aswell, what are my options?

I had no idea Amiga has Ranger ram (learn something new every day!). I am interested to know when you think these might be made.... and how much they may cost.. Sounds a great value card!

I had no idea Amiga has Ranger ram (learn something new every day!)
Oh, actually it's easy to understand:

Chip RAM is here for the custom chips. Comparable with the RAM on the graphic card in the PC. Except that this is not only used for graphics, but also for sound, floppy I/O and more. The accesses of the chips to chipRAM is called DMA (Direct Memory Access).

The difference to the PC is that the Amiga (in basic equipment) has no other RAM. That's why there are programs and data in this RAM, and the CPU has to cheat between the DMA cycles to get there. In other words, access to chip RAM is slow for the CPU.. More graphics and other things - CPU acess is slower.
Opposite that stands the fastRAM. This RAM is reserved for the CPU, it can access it unrestrained. That's why it's called FastRAM.

In between is Slow-RAM (RangerRAM). This is a cheap memory expansion that is so poorly integrated into the system that it is slowed down by the DMA, but is outside the address space that the custom chips can access and thus can not be used as chipRAM. As I said, just cheap, nothing more. No magic.
This kind of RAM expansions was popular back in the day's to expand A1000's RAM, whre RAM IC's was piggyback mounted it three layers..

As for the 68EC020TK there are actually 16MB of RAM on the board, Matze used every single memory area that can be used to give us so much memory as possible..

I am interested to know when you think these might be made....
just check Amibay from time to time :)

and how much they may cost.. Sounds a great value card!
120€ - 130€ as always - ready to boot (relocator, ribbon cable, CF adaptor included)

@DjCook when you start producing the 64MB version will you be starting a new thread for it or continue in this thread for both? Personally I'm hoping for a second thread. I like the card but am not interested in the smaller RAM version so if I can stop following this thread and keep on the lookout for the new one that would be great :)

see no reason to start new thread as Accelerator remains the same, it was announced as Turbo card with two ram boadrs, and it will be exact as planned initially.
Beside of that, a couple of users declared interest in 64MB version already, opening new thread will add misunderstanding and chaos.

About 68EC020TK - there will be a new thread of course, as it is totally different card, just spoke some words about it here, to let community know about other apportunities to expand 68k DIP socket Amigas..

Usually it happens if You remove power cable from floppy drive, but let ribbon plugged in...
Please read installation steps carefully - CF Adapter DO NOT NEED external power cable, it becomes +5v from Pin20 of the ide, there is also recoverable fuse installed to that pin, if something goes wrong - it will just power off your cf adapter, so Your floppy can be left untouched and fully working.
Tere is a simple mod to attach cf activity to floppy led, however, i have heard that this mod corrupts data, so I'd not recommend it. What I've done - is just wired a small bright led, and placed it UNDER floppy led, so now if cf is activ - this led shines through the floppy led :)
Hope this will help You further..
Kind regards,

Viktor

A1000 version.

I have couple questions (but still unconditionally interested):
1. how much soldering is a required? A couple of lines or something?
2. what do people do with the CF adapter? I mean: it's coming off the IDE connector thing? And people do a ribbon cable and feed it outside their amigas (somehow)?
3. For the CF card adapter, does everything I need come with the purchase? Or do I need to get something that actually holds the CF card itself, and connects to the IDE cable?

Hi,
Yes, 4MB Fast RAM is added to the ZII.
current prototype of 64MB works like this: 1MB is autoconfigured as ZII, other 63MB need to be added manually
Board is routed 32bit, ZIII is possible, however Matthias don't like this option as it will be not compatible to KS 1.3 then...
i hope this will be changed after release, or, at least, user can choose wich FW he likes to have - that would be great, since 64MB are pain to use under 1.3

Do you know of a good way to secure this card in the A2000? I'm sure it's failry safe in there, but I would feel better if it wasn't just standing around looking all breakable.

Does the card have a maprom function? I am considering buying 3.1.4.


EDIT:
Also, is there a LED header? I can't find one that is abviously a LED-header, but there are some headers here.

Sorry guy's, had too much work last month, wasn't able to build new TK's.. also got two RAM boards for repair, and this is more time consuming than to build a new board..
Anyway, these two faulty boards are repaired, one is on the way back home now, second one will leave soon..
At this point I'd like to remind one important detail: These boards have powered key pin (Pin20) this is needed to use CF and DOMs without additional power wire. If You like experiments and try to attach CD or hard drives to TK's IDE - PLEASE USE FLAT RIBBONS WITHOUT PIN20 or remove polyfuse. Adding power on that pin for hard drive will break Your drive or/and TK!!!

Meanwhile have built next TK card so this will go further here..

If there are so many people interested... maybe we could make a big order in some Chines fab company to have that assembled for us? I can try to help with that, if you want.

Yeah... That way Poor old Viktor won't be getting contaminated by breathing in the solder fumes (going inside his lungs)...

Hello Amigans,

wasn't able to build these for a long period because of my daily job (10 hours a day atm)
feel the need to answer some guestions:

Not worried Viktor, so Long as I can get one before Christmas...:) (I wonder how long I can holed on to the $$$)..
You dropped Your interest several times Mike, so You almost last person in queue now, hoping to get Your card before Christmas will not fulfill, unfortunately, really sorry..


Hi, if I understand right if I buy the 4MB it can become a 64 just swapping the Ide/ memory card?
If this is correct I declare interest in a ready built and tested 68030 TK (50Mhz), with FPU with 4MB RAM card and CF Card adapter
A2000 version

Thanks
that was the plan, and it looked very promising, unfortunately this seems to be non-working atm,
meanwhile have built three revisions of 64MB expansions now - none of them isn't working reliable,
Matze is blaming 96-row connector sitting in between of cards, 100Mhz signal going thru it is too noisy..

SRAM is working without any problems because there are no refresh cycles in SRAM, it works with 50Mhz,
while SDRAM needs a refresh after each cycle, so it runs at double speed
there is no hope to see a working 64MB atm.. Sorry
so everyone should rethink buying this card or not...


If there are so many people interested... maybe we could make a big order in some Chines fab company to have that assembled for us? I can try to help with that, if you want.
You can do it, however i don't want to be involved in this action in any kind
The reason is simple - Matthias statement for this card is "Not for commercial purposes", this is very thin ice,
i don't want to make he angry because this will lead to the all known end - there will be no opensource projects anymore
and this is something what i really don't want to happen..
If You decide to do it - my advice is: ask Matthias before You do something like this, because some of his projects are commercial
(A500/A2000 Grapnic card, 68EC020TK for example) and some not...



Yeah... That way Poor old Viktor won't be getting contaminated by breathing in the solder fumes (going inside his lungs)...
it would be funny .. if my eyes would not be much worse since i do these long soldering sessions..


Thanks for reading this, have built a brand new 68030TK, will send payment notification to the next person in queue
thank You for Your patience,

-Viktor

Hi,
as some of You already know - Matze has released new Firmware for 68030TK 4MB cards,
this new firmware allows to automount 4MB RAM into Zorro III Space if Kickstart 3.1 is used
WILL NOT MOUNT UNDER KICKSTART 1.3!!!
The idea behind - is to use 68030TK in pair with other RAM expansins like Kipper2k or MKL's 8MB Zorro II Card
have tested it on A500 and it works excellent,
unfortunatelly is very unstable on my A2000 - i can't let it work reliable.

Will upload all firmwares i got in first post, so persons who already own 68030TK card and
want to experiment - please feel free to test and report Your experience.

this project is open source. Everything you need to make your own is on github. The awesome value the OP brings is his expertise in assembling, programming and testing these PCBs. He also has the right equipment to put it together and program, a cost that 1 off boards might not make financial sense.

Well, this is indeed really precise answer. cplds have very small pitch so microscope is a must building these accelerators. Also two different programmers are needed (for Lattice & Xilinx)

Glad You have asked - Zlll seems to be unstable :( so atm i can deliver only Zll flashed firmware)
Bugs was reported to the board designer, he will look what needs to be improoved before it can be used

Hello folks,
Finally got time to build more 68030TK's this week,
went to DigiKey to restock spare parts and noticed that they screwed their prices just overnight
They literally doubled the price for RAM:
https://www.digikey.de/product-detail/de/alliance-memory-inc/AS6C8016-55ZIN/1450-1041-ND/4234600
Asking 6.05€ pro each now, CPLDS are the same and also 96-way connectors are...

Really sorry, but i need to correct selling price of the 68030TK because of that,
Please do not ask me to switch to UTsoure, have bought 10x chips for graphic cards im building
at the moment and got a lot of troubles with them,
so unofficial suppliers are indeed not reliable, delivering broken parts and just slow down the whole building process
as you need to waste your time for debugging and finding the issues..
hope You can understand it..
