    some of You already got this accelerator card with 4MB expansion, they can proove this is the fastest Accelerator in it's class available atm,
    Now we are back with 64MB version of it, and we are happy to report that this card is working on A500, A1000 and of course on A2000 too!
    Even more, it was designed as a part of expanded system, where RTG, Flicker Fixer, SCSI Devices, and other Expansions are united in one system!

    Of course it's still a hobby rather than a commercial product, so everyone with soldering skills is welcome to build these,
    Sources are available at: https://gitlab.com/MHeinrichs
    (Free for non commercial reproduction!)

    FAIR WARNING:
    There are some Zorro bus related issues on rev.4.x A2000 machines,
    this is rather rev.4.x and not accelerator related, hence accelerator will probably not work in CPU Slot

    As always, there are some important things You need to check before installing a new card:
    Most important thing here is PSU - it need to be in good shape (recapped)
    heavy 2,5A (A500) PSU version will probably be too weak and doesn't work
    do voltage mesurement (while system is on) on CPU socket, should be not less than 4,8V!

    CPU socket need to be clean and should make good connection to the board
    in some cases additional power & GND cables are necessary to be connected to the ram board
    Also Your Amiga need to be in good shape (recapped) - most caps are dry 35 Years after production date
    two big Caps near PSU Socket are most important!
    Also boards need a 3D Printed cover on the connector that acts like a shield
    (also piece of foil wrapped in a paper can do the trick)


    Options available:
    1) 68030TK + 64MB (card only, NO CPU) 155 Eur
    2) 68030TK + 64MB (card only, EC type CPU) 175 Eur
    3) 68030TK + 64MB, A500 / A1000 Set (EC type CPU) Relocator, CF Card adapter, Flat ribbon extension 190 Eur
    4) 68030TK + 64MB A2000 Set (EC type CPU) CPU Slot Card, CF Card adapter, Flat ribbon extension210 Eur

    Upgrade
    from 4 to 64MB:
    Unfortunately TK needs some resitors to be changed and Firmware (Lattice cpld) need also be reprogrammed
    Once this is done - You are ready to use TK card with 64MB RAM board - 70Ä
    See correct resistor values here:
    http://www.amibay.com/showthread.php?99425-68030-TK-Another-accelerator-card-for-Amiga-A500-A1000-A2000-designed-by-Matze-(aka-Matthias-Heinrichs)&p=965857&viewfull=1#post965857
    or:
    You can also send Your 68030TK card to me,
    will gladly swap resistors and reprogram and do a full test


    Please send PayPal payments as "friends & family" or add 4% PayPal fee.

    Due to the cost of this expansion, shipping it tracked and insured only
    Shipping in Germany is 4,99Ä
    Other Countries 25Ä

    Also offered for sale elsewhere.


    FAQ:
    Q:
    Will this card work on the A500 and /or A500+?
    Sure, works fine, however a relocator board is needed to fit keyboard in place

    Q: Will this card work on the A1000?
    A: Yes, it does, however
    default A1000 roms can't work on 68030 CPU,
    because of that
    kickstart adapter is needed.
    WARNING! Installation reguires some soldering!!!


    Q: Will this card work on the A2000?
    A: Sure, it was tested on rev.6.x and is fully functional! FAIR WARNING: may or may not work in CPU Slot on rev.4.x, runs nice in 68k socket though
    Q: Will this card work on CDTV?
    A: No, this card will not fit inside an unmodded CDTV, sorry

    Q: Is the relocator necessary to use this card?
    A: Yes, it's really necessary to be able to close standard A500 case,
    to relocate accelerator to right position and add KS ROM on A1000
    and to be able to install it in CPU Slot on A2000.

    Q: What IDE device can I use?
    A: You can use CF Cards and real HDD Drives of course

    Q: Do i need to buy a CPU with MMU?
    A: No, this isn't necessary since this accelerator has it's own boot rom - IDE Speed is very fast.

    Q: Will this Accelerator work with KS 1.3?
    A: No, this Accelerator has 64MB ZorroIII FastRAM,
    KS 1.3 can't handle this amount of RAM,
    You need KS 3.1 or 3.1.4

    Q: Can i upgrade my existing 4MB to 64MB RAM card by swapping out ram chips?
    A: No, this isn't possible 64MB RAM card is totally different .


    Q: Will this card work on Atari STx?
    A: Nope, this card was designed to be used in Amiga computers, however source code is well documented,
    feel free to write Atari Firmware for it!

    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..

    Interested in one with relocator for my A1000. Currently I've M-Tec 68020 inside, so it will be a great replacement.

    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?

    Ok Community ,
    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
    regards,

    -Viktor
