Kickstart Switcher full working now.

Kickstart Switcher full working now.

The kickstart switcher works fine now.
You can see my A1000 booting with KS2.05, and after a long reset, booting onto the KS1.3 onto the video here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXTo_p52HXg

With the short reset, the kickstart isn't swapped.

As I said if somebody is interested, I'll see to make a new PCBs' production.

Automatic Kickstart Switcher for Amiga 1000 [PERFECT WORKING]

Interested.
By the way, why redesigning the PCB ?
Did you look at the compatibility of the PCB shape with other extension boards available for the Amiga 1000 ?

THe width of the PCB is really narrow.
As you can see into the pictures, the adapter can be used for example with IDE68K.
To be used with an accelerator board plugged into 68000s' socket, the simpliest way is to
add sockets between Amiga motherboard and the accelerator board.

Do you think about a particular expansion board?

I want to modify the design of the PCB because I had forgotten one track, and I want to
add the possibility to modify the long reset time with a jumper, perhaps the possibility to
connect a little "daugther" board for leds that could show which kickstart is active.
This last option is an idea. Not sure I'll add.

Members who are interested can also send me a PM to confirm exactly what they want (PCB adapter or PCB adapter + LED module).
I think it's also a good idea to avoid forgetting someone! More members interested, less will be the price!
I have to evaluate the price of the interface. Which is sure is that it will not be expensive! :)
