List of Feature Requests

Below is a list of features that were requested by people at CommVex I'm working to integrate into the board.  Thanks to everyone for their interest and input into making the board better!

  • USB keyboard interface
  • Dual SID chip support
  • Internal IEC header to support 1541 drive emulators (also add header for parallel port lines for super-speed)
  • Add the cassette port back in (omitted in prototype)
  • A bunch of power headers (the board can supply 3.3V, 5V, 9V, 12V rails)
  • USB headers for front and rear USB ports on the case for 5V power
  • RAM expansion on the motherboard
  • Amiga clock port
  • On-board ethernet adapter (RRNet or equivalent)
  • Dip switches for address remapping
  • A super header that would bring out more signals that aren't on User/Expansion ports for different projects


  1. Nice presentation at CommVEx.
    Take a look at this rotary switch as an alternative to dip switches for addresses...

  2. I would add a request.

    In all seriousness, how about an FPGA that has access to the entire buss? It would be used to create add-in stuff that's not even been dreamed of yet.

  3. Maybe it would be worthy to add to the list "DVI video-signal output"?
