TF1230 Design Complete

Post by terriblefire » Thu Apr 01, 2021 1:20 pm

Due to the anti-competitive nature of some players in the Amiga hardware (one in particular) scene I've decided to finish and send off this one for manufacture...

TF1230 is a 50mhz locked 030 with up to 128Mb of RAM and an extra IDE interface.

Plan is for the firmware to be open source (since its basically a TF330). The PCBs will be sold on the exxos forum blank and some Amiga retailers will get to sell completed boards in their stores with the logo on. I may let the gerbers go at some point down the line.

Nice one, but my April fools choice would have been a TF560 mockup :lol: Or maybe a dual CPU 1260

I assume there is a plan to add FPU in future revisions?
