||A4000: Two projects for original motherboard remakes|
Last week two projects for the remake of A4000 motherboards (revision B) were presented:
The US-American trader and repair service Paul 'Acill' Rezendes is going to solve the problem of highly attrited A4000 motherboards he gets for repairing. Therefore he started a campaign Amiga 4000 Replica with Schematics at GoFundMe.
At the moment 4910 USD of the required 5000 USD were donated but Rezendes himself did finance the remaining sum and already tasked an US-American company with the development of an exact clone of the revision B of the A4000 motherboard. The corresponding project file will be available in different file formats ("open and public"), so interested people can produce new motherboards. The initiator of the project answers questions in a thread on amiga.org.
Another remake of the A4000 motherboard is A4000+ Alice. This design has been already finished. The developer already has assembled a working Amiga 4000 using "his" motherboard. As soon as the remaining motherboards will be sold on Amibay, the project documents will be publicly available. The Finnish developer 'hese7' plans also an ATX version of the motherboard. According to Finnish users a Prometheus-PCI solution will be included. (cg) (Translation: dr)
