I was annoyed for a long time that there was no RTC available for my favourite Amiga, the Amiga 1000. That's how this little project came about.
So i proudly present:

The A1k SimpleClock for Amiga 1000 and 500

Gerbers, Eagle Boardfiles and more info in my Gitlab:

And the best, its really cheap to build :D
Enjoy it! :)

Hah! Yeah, I know. I was looking for stand-alone pics so I could more easily promote it elsewhere. Right now to the untrained eye it just looks like the 68000.

It's exactly what my A1000 needs! Thanks!
Do you sell pcb? Or maybe a kit? I can solder it, buy differents parts but I have no idea how to make/build the pcb... But i'll find :lol:
I need this! My 1000 needs this! ;)

I agree, this looks amazing! I would love to build one, but I don't have the skill to be able to pull this off. I will gladly pay for an assembled version.

Take the Gerbers that Stumpi has shared (thank you!) and upload them to JLCPCB.com or a boardhouse of your choice. You'll have to order a minimum of 5 boards, most likely, but they are very inexpensive. Shipping might cost you a little bit, but, you can always sell off your extras to make that back.

I looked at JLCPCB and it's a very good idea ! I'll probably command some PCB for this awesome RTC for my A1000 ! Thank you Stumpi and Obitus !

If anyone does this, I'll gladly help pay.
