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

Schematic Rev 0.6

I'm posting the schematic of my prototype board for those interested in seeing what changes have been made from the B-3 rev C64 board.

First Post!

I will be posting info here about my Micro ATX replacement board for a Commodore C64.  I will post updates and changes as I get the board ready for a larger production run.  All suggestions and requests for features are welcome!!

The working prototype board was presented at CommVex 2014 in Las Vegas.
