    The dmac needs to be forgiving not the board��

    Have a few space dmac 02s just in case.

    Can somebody advise me a trustworthy shop/seller for the 2 Altera EPM7128SQC160-15. Prices vary so much?

    And I assume there is still no software devloped/found to make use of the DSP, is there?

    When it comes to sourcing obsolete components there really are no 100% trustworthy sources. EBay, AliExpress, etc you just put forth some effort to research seller reviews and hope for the best.

    As for the DSP, no-nothing for the Amiga has been developed for that as far as I know. Apple used the same DSP in some (all?) of their 040 Mac Quadras, and in fact I’ll be using a DSP from a Quadra parts donor board.

    Cheers

    Me too, I hoard custom chips for spares or occasions such as this build. In fact I’ve got a spare DMAC-04 I intend to use since I doubt there’s anything more deserving than a new AA3000+. I’m even having my spare A3000 chassis and power supply powder coated to give it that ultra-fanatic edge.

    I’m hoping the guys on A1K forum manage to get some stuff sorted for the DSP

    Hi Trixter,

    That would be great! I don't have high expectations for that to work, but I'm installing a dsp on mine anyways. This is a dream come true for me, Hese did an incredible feet.

    Yeah, a DSP is going on mine too. Fingers crossed. Even if we just get a plug-in to use it to decode mp3s in something like amigaamp, I’ll be happy

    Just for info: I've got 10 DSPs to spare. Will open up a sales thread on Monday.

    Are there any docs for how the DSP integrated into the Amiga system? I've heard the programming tools for the DSP are naff so it's going to be uphill to get it to do anything.

    Well, let's say the documentation on the DSP is relatively sparse despite it being used not only in different Mac models but also in a lot of telecom equipment.

    I guess a good starting point would be to look at what was done on the different Quadra models to get the chip going.

    For me, at the moment, it's merely a matter of having a complete AA3000+ board with all its specialties. Therefore I consider it a must to populate the DSP on mine.

    Matt3k: I recommended 04, 07 combination, especially if you want to use the new black 3640
