First i'd like to thank you all for brilliant work you guys do for Amiga fans.

I have CD32 with Elsat ProModule so i wasnt much interesed in TF328 but TF330 is simply amazing piece of hardware :D

Questions i'd like to ask are:

1.I have MC68EC030RP40B in PGA i bought two for another project so got one spare Will it work with TF330?
2.Is there any place where i can get on list to buy TF330 when it's get released also without CPU preferably if the above mentioned will work.

Yes that cpu should work fine at 50mhz

Don`t need to be on list, when they are ready to ship one of us builders on here can sort you one out

Anyone tested if TF330 works with SD2IDE?

Yes. It does. Same IDE compatibility at all TF cards. There is a wiki page on TF328 github with a list

Here is a Link to my 8gb Raspberry Pie image to program TF328/ TF330 which has the programming software on it `xc3sprog`
you will need `Winimage` to flash the Sd: here :

Here is a zipped `Howto` put together by me with a picture and commands in a text file for you to copy into a terminal so you can use with my image in the previous post. so long as you follow by the letter and have connections correctly configured ( see Stephens Video for Jtag connections) it will work as I have tested it :)

This is For the TF330r3 with jeds provided for the new `Burst` 2 and the earlier slower jed so you can reflash back if your CPU falls over with the speed this can happen as not all CPU`s are equal

If you break something don`t come crying to me, this is at your own risk, if you`re not sure then ask or send it to one of us builders for an upgrade :)

Hi All,

Received my TF330 boards yesterday, Cheers TF! I've built two of them and they seem to go together really nicely. The pads on the board seem somehow more forgiving than the 534 and the RAM is a pleasure to work with!

Both boards appeared to work correctly straight away, pass diagrom mem tests etc. However I'm having issues with one not wanting to recognise my CF card. It's not detected in boot options and so can't get much further with it. When I use the same CF and adapter with the other 330 it boots fine and seems happy. I've tried another adapter and CF as well without success. Continuity tested the IDE header in conjunction with the excellent OpenBoardView and all seems happy. Also checked the CPLd and gave it some attention on anything that looked remotely suspicious. Unfortunately nothing seems to allow it to be recognised. I'm using the latest firmware from tfbinaries - on both cards.

Have any of you volume builders encountered this issue before or could suggest where I should be focusing my attention?

have you swapped the CPU`s ( small % of my 030/40 mhz will fall down with the new firmware) as its just pushes some over the edge

You should reflow your CPLD, there is probably a pin that's not making contact.

Thanks for the replies guys, I think I've resolved the issue. I retested the board under diagrom and to my surprise the fastram was no longer being detected, even though it had been detected and passed test after the initial build.

I re-flowed the ram again and gave the whole board an additional clean and now it's detecting the ram and booting from the CF card. It's been under test in AmigaTestKit for the past hour and looks good so far.

Cheers for the tips.

Also, Am I right in saying the labels for the 5V and GND are the wrong way round on the PCB silkscreen for the 330 power header? I assume this has been pointed out already and I've probably even read it but just in case?
