I bought both Rom Boards, single and dual rom capable.
Later I bought a ZIF 40 pin connector. This is the green one on ebay that has the lever.
Is it okay to use one of these for a 1.3 KS Rom on my blank board that has a single rom location?
With my A1000, I care about upgrading the rom, memory, and do something with the infernal or internal floppy disk drive.
edit: I wish to make FD0 an external drive. I have seen some mods on the web that will switch FD0 and FD1. I guess that is the right numbers for them.
I admit I want a Gotek FDD emulator. I wish I had one that used an SD card and could be installed internally and be accessed from the front.
I wish I could put a SSD and a Raspberri Pi where the FDD sits.
I have seen a blank TF520 board on ebay and would like to increase the speed of my A1000. Are these worth building up?
I do not see any memory expansion on them.
Did Commodore have any schematics for a 4 or 8 MB expansion?
Another thing I would like to see is a smaller Daughter Board.
I may look to work on one of those myself, if someone has not already done so.
Thanks for listening to me gab.
I just finished upgrading my Amiga 1000. Here's what I did:
1. Upgraded Denise to support EHB
2. Removed the low-pass audio filter
3. Installed a dual-Kickstart / 68k relocation card
4. Installed a 68EC020TK accelerator card
5. Installed a toggle switch to select the Kickstart ROM (since the card is inaccessible under the accelerator)
It came out really great, the only thing I'm missing is the ability to easily get data on to the CF card. I'm currently using Amiga Explorer (through Parallels on my Mac) via a USB-serial cable and null modem, which works, but is quite slow.
I didn't want to make any modifications to the case of the A1000, so in order to change anything I have to open the case.
I'll be glad to share any details.
