Web-application: Amiga PCB Explorer
The "Amiga PCB Explorer" written by Christian "Scrat" Euler is supposed to support do-it-yourselfer repairing Amiga mainboards. Among others with this tool you are able to:
  • Look up signal paths where physical traces have been damaged by battery acid or capacitor leakage
  • Find out which components are connected to the same signal net
  • Get a quick overview on chip pinouts
  • Locate any part on the PCB
  • Navigate around the PCB and marvel at its beauty

Amiga Reloaded: Information about planned Amiga-clone
On the "Amiga: 30 Years", Jens Schönfeld had announced that he is developing a Amiga-motherboard named "Amiga Reloaded". Meanwhile some more information are available in the Wiki of Individual Computers. We have summarized the essentials:
  • first prototype in Q1/2016
  • The target price of the main board with AGA chips is under 200,- EUR
  • keyboard case will be a A500 case, second target will be the A1200 case
  • Amiga Reloaded is an AGA Amiga using the original chips Alice, Lisa and Paula, along with two CIA chips, equipped with 2MByte Chipram
  • The Amiga Reloaded will not have any CPU but has an A1200-compatible CPU slot; assurance that ACA12xx cards work (except for the old ACA1230 type), and we'll also do our best to make the popular Blizzard cards work. However, there will be no product support for operation with non-iComp branded CPU cards.
  • only one monitor output as standard: A black&white composite output for monitors that are compatible with PAL and/or NTSC video timing; one out of two choices for colour output has to be installed: 15kHz RGB output board or Flickerfixer output board
  • Two CF-card slots will be available as mass storage
  • Network and USB can be added by extensions of Individual Computers (RapidRoad USB or ACA500-compatible network-module), a PCMCIA-port is not available
  • Other ports: Audio (3.5mm stereo jack), floppy disk (compatible with PC and Amiga disk drives), keyboard (Amiga 500 or 1200, selecting with a jumper), parallel, serial, Mouse/Joystick.
  • using a modern laptop power supply
After finishing the development, "binding orders" are supposed to to find out the actual demand of the Amiga Reloaded. The money has to be payed before mass-production has started. "The boards will be delivered about 18-20 weeks after the initial order phase." (cg) (Translation: dr)
