    Fully assembled. Like that, I'm sure that the board will run fine before to be sent.

    OK! List updated!

    I have also looked for the possibility of all in one board solution.
    It's possible to have define holes onto the PCB schematics. With this solution, the two parts could be separate. We had the same idea!
    I have also made a new design with smc components under the kickstarts. The ROMs are mounted onto sockets, so there is enough place to put them. The routed PCB with this design is nice. I'm going to see to add the part for LEDs.
    I'll try this evening!

    I am interested, but seems to me that your pcd doesn't fit on my A1000 because I have a space between the odd and even socket...
    If so, have you plan to design a new pcb?

    I'm interested in one piece without the leds, but i would like to know what kind of mods are needed on the mobo aka fitting instructions

    No need to create a new design!
    For a PCB like yours, you have to remove U5S and to put a socket at the U5R place. The solder has to be removed with a desolder pump. You can do that with a soldering iron an a manual pump is you don't own a desoldering station.

    I work actually onto an installation manual. But, if you know DJbase adapter, the modifications are the same.
    Me, I have found an old scan of a German magazine about a simple kickstart adapter. This is also what DJBase used to make his version.
    If you want, I'll make a short description in the weekend.

    I have made a new design with the Led logic part onto the main PCB. The board for LEDs is attached to the main PCB.
    Like that, the LED PCB can be detached from the man PCB with a cutting pliers.
    With the previous design, we had two PCBs (9+3=12€ / $17 USD).
    With this new design and the number of interested, we can expect to obtain a price around 5,30€ / $7,60 USD!

    I don't know why I didn't thought about the following solution before...
    Well, ther is allready a LED power onto the front case of the A1000. The solution of three LED is not good
    for me because we need to modify the front case. This afternoon, I have worked to find lowest prices for
    components, and I have found a LED bi-color! RED and GREEN with the same component. Cooooool.

    So, the idea is simple. We remove the original power LED of the A1000, and we replace it by the new one.
    Like that, when the AMIGA boots with KS1.3, the LED is RED, and after a long reset, the KS3.1 is actived and
    the LED is GREEN.

    By the way, there is no optional module LED. The logic is integrated onto the PCB of the kickstart switcher!
    New design done.
