A New Motherboard For Amiga, The Platform That Refuses To Die
Hackaday writes:In the early years of personal computing there were a slew of serious contenders. A PC, a Mac, an Atari ST, an Amiga, and several more that all demanded serious consideration on the general purpose desktop computer market. Of all these platforms, the Amiga somehow stubbornly refuses to die. The Amiga 1200+ from [Jeroen Vandezande] is the latest in a long procession of post-Commodore Amigas, and as its name suggests it provides an upgrade for the popular early-1990s all-in-one Amiga model. It takes the form of a well-executed open-source printed circuit board that’s a drop-in replacement for the original A1200 motherboard… The catch: it does require all the custom Amiga chips from a donor board… It’s fair to say that this is the Amiga upgrade we’d all have loved to see in about 1996 rather than waiting until 2019.
