We’re happy to sponsor one of Sweden’s premiere Amiga Scene event this year! Thanks to the commitment and endurance from our small but growing community a fully working complete Amy-ITX with Friends system is one of the main prizes in this years Amiga OCS/ECS Compo!
Big THANKS to Highpuff and Spot for making all this happen! Cheers!
Just wanted to give you a small update. Since the summer in Sweden have been a-mazing we’ve actually had better tings to do than working. But as always – everyone who has received payment-info via email have received their boards. To everyone waiting for confirmation – Thank You for your patience!
As a small teaser-update there’s been some pictures and rumors circulating regarding the P2 compatible super small “Amy-RTG card”. We’re still hunting down the publishers of these photos and rumors – but rest assured … Nah, I’m just kidding 🙂 Yes there’s a really cool RTG-card. I hope we’ll be able to let you have a go at it soon… [Watch this Space]
The documentation folder on Google Drive have been updated with the much anticipated technical manual and build docs. Please be aware that this is a “living” document and can be updated without notice. So make sure you’re using the latest online version.
(Access to these docs are granted at time of delivery of the Amy-ITX & Friends PCBs)
As some of you already have noticed we’ve now begun shipping out the first Amy-ITX & Friends PCB’s. Everyone who declared interest will receive an email with payment details when it’s their turn. Now, since this is a manual and ‘best effort project it might take some time before everyone get their boards. But we’re confident you will be very pleased with the result of the hard work done by Mr.A.
We’ve gotten a few questions from people who filled in the interest form back in February. Some of you are wondering IF you actually got on the list or not. Well – if you filled in the form and got a “Thank’s for your interest in Amy-ITX!” at the end – you’re on the list. Don’t worry.
As stated many times before, we’re not in the Rainmaking business. We’ve all got families, jobs and other priorities. Despite what many of you might wish – Amy is not our main priority. It’s a passion. And as with most passions the best way to kill it is to go ‘All Work and no Play’, so we’re focusing on a perfect product, enjoying ourselves and taking it slow.
With that said; we’re making good progress and thanks to the CNY we got some extra time for some final touch stuff and performance tests. Everything looks great! And you’re all going to be blown away with this little beauty.. In the meantime head over to our Gallery where I just uploaded a few new pics!
Thank you all for showing interest in Amy-ITX. Under the current circumstances the application for the second batch is now closed. We’re looking forward to watching this amazing and dedicated community bringing Amy to life.
Everyone who declared interest in Amy-ITX will receive details on how to confirm your order.
Time really flies when you’re having fun. And this in itself is a testament to what we are doing. Can you imagine that to the day one year ago we posted the first news about Amy-ITX?! The feedback so far have been overwhelming.
So it is with GREAT PLEASURE we hereby announce the availability of another batch Amy-ITX boards!
The process will be similar as the last time.. You simply declare interest by entering your details on the link below. This is most lightly the last batch produced by us. The signup process will be open for 4 weeks, starting today! After four weeks we will place the order and you will be contacted with payment details.
Also, please note – for so many reasons this is a DIY project! What you get is a main PCB, a CHIP RAM PCB and the BOM (list of components) as well as all documentation needed to build your very own Amiga Compatible Home Computer. If you have any questions regarding this, please see our FAQ. We will do our very best to answer any and all questions on the Swedish Amiga Community forum. But we do not offer any kind of official “support”. However our community is growing and members are among the most friendly, experienced and skilled you can hope to meet.
As a unique offer together with the second batch Amy-ITX boards – We now have the great pleasure to offer you the ultimate Classic combo between compatibility and performance! Mr.A’s design outperforms all equivalent accelerators on the market. (Sysinfo CPU) (Sysinfo IDE) Remember – we’re not here to compete or step on any toes. We all love and respect the hard work done by everyone in this passionate niche market!
Like Amy – this card is more than hardware – It’s Art!
And the fun doesn’t stop there! We’re also making the Ultra Slim 10MBit Network card available. Your new favorite home computer has never been this slick, compatible and connected! Both these DIY-KITs will be available together with the awesome Amy-ITX motherboard. The same principle applies – signup is open for 4 weeks – starting TODAY!
While it probably doesn’t come as a surprise to most of us – the humble designer of the Amy sure didn’t expect this kind of appreciation and excitement.
Yesterday the AmiGBG Team announced that a special edition of their rare and prestigious award would go to our very own ‘Mr.A’ for “his astonishing creativity and passion ..” [including] “the Amy project, a product based around the original custom chips of the classic Amiga computer from Commodore.”
Mr.A:“This is a great honor for me. I simply don’t know what to say …”
