    Default Emplant Emulator card in original box

    For Sale:

    Emplant emulator card, untested, in original box, with manual, no disks, might have them somewhere, but unable to look on short notice. Might have some memory for it as well.

    Some info from the Big Book of Amiga Hardware:

    Normally provides Apple Macintosh emulation but a 586 module is available to emulate PC compatible software. The Emplant is a Zorro-II board that, in combination with the appropriate software, makes it possible to emulate other computers on the Amiga system. The Emplant hardware performs several functions. Sockets are provided for both DIP- and SIMM-packaged ROMs (the ROMs of the "target" computer are installed on the board, then copied to image files, and removed). Also provided are two Macintosh-type serial ports and a basic, no-frills, non-autobooting SCSI-1 interface based on the 53C80 SCSI chip. There are also empty sockets for audio digitizing chips on the Emplant board, but the software has never been implemented. The dual serial ports and the SCSI controller are optional, and some models of the board come without one or both of these options. A "RsrvMem" command added to the the beginning of the startup-sequence sets up the MMU for use with the Emplant board. If you wish to remove the Emplant from the A4000, it's best to remove this command first, or getting the machine to start may be impossible. Early versions of the board came with "ST" brand serial chips, "LOGIC" brand SCSI chips, or custom GALs with date codes earlier than 4693. All of these chips caused problems; the serial and SCSI chips with their respective ports, the GAL chips with general operation. A commonly-defective -5V regulator on the A4000 motherboard can cause the Emplant board to fail diagnostic tests and not perform properly in other ways, including unreliable operation of AppleTalk devices. The included diagnostic program is often a source of concern; reports indicate that it doesn't work properly on PAL machines, and often it can't locate the Emplant board, even if there are no problems. This may be a problem specific to the A4000.

    The card itself looks undamaged, however, the soldering points are looking weird (see attached picture), perhaps a resolder is all it needs?

    Asking: 70 excluding shipping and Paypal fees when not using Paypal gift

    Shipping: Worldwide should be around 25

    Any questions, or more/better pictures, send me a PM.
