    At the moment I'm still gathering cash by selling the prototype PCBs here on Amibay so I can fund the first batch of rev 1.1 PCBs.

    I will be selling only blank PCBs and provide the BOM, firmware, etc. so people can assemble the boards themselves.

    I assume AGA Alice and Lisa chips are required. Are these source-able without cannibalizing other Amigas (A4000/A1200/CD32)?

    Are there other difficult to source chips on the BOM?

The plan is to add 112MB Fast RAM hack to the rev 2.0 without additional boards but do you guys know if these hacks (64MB or 112MB) have incompatibility issues with some hardware or software? Either I could hardwire the hack to the board or make it toggleable via a jumper.

    As the latest picture I posted, the board is quite dense with traces so adding more features to the board will require more space than what I can get with 4 layers using the current form factor. I'd rather do a board that has all planned features integrated on the motherboard itself than adding features with extra boards.
    I am using the 64MB Hack at the min as I haven't got round to doing 112MB yet. I have not found any issues with it.

    The good thing with the 112MB one is you only need one or two simm sockets. This would free up a bit of space.
