A1200 FPU Upgrade (Onboard)

£16.66 Excl. VAT

A1200 FPU upgrade (onboard) which includes socket, FPU and installation.

What does the modification do?

This FPU modification adds a real FPU to the A1200 motherboard, there has always been a place (U0) for an onboard FPU but it was never added. This is a perfect compliment for a stock A1200 or one with an accelerator without an FPU option, for example The TF1230 or any standard ram upgrade like the 11Mb Fast Ram upgrade. However there are a couple of limitations of adding an onboard FPU.

  • The FPU will be using the CPU clock which is at 14Mhz, which means the FPU will be running at 14Mhz
  • The FPU will be disabled if you use a 040 or 060 accelerator, for example TF1260. This is because both the 040 and 060 processors do not acknowledge external FPUs as you can get those processors with built in FPUs.

This modification is available as an option on our A1200 recapping service, ReAmiga 1200 and Refurbished units.

Amiga A1200 Motherboard – Refurbished

Amiga A1200 motherboard fully refurbished (various motherboard revisions). Each A1200 motherboard is professionally refurbished and has had the following work completed:

  • Tested before any work has began.
  • All electrolytic capacitors removed using professional tools and techniques (no twisting off caps and boards a pre-warmed before the removing capacitors using hot air) this puts far less stress to the board itself.
  • Pads cleaned with flux/wick/IPA.
  • New electrolytic capacitors installed using our premium polymer capacitors.
  • Modulator removed.
  • Timing fix applied for ACA , TF1230, TF1260 Accelerator Cards.
  • Board retested - Video (composite and RGB), Audio, CIA, Floppy, IDE, Parallel, Serial, Mouse, Joystick, DF1.
  • Board ultrasonic cleaned at 60 degrees using deionised water and professional PCB flux cleaner and then dried.
  • Board tested again and tested for a minimum of 4 hrs playing a rolling demo.
  What is Ultrasonic cleaning? Ultrasonic cleaning is a process that uses ultrasound (usually from 20–40 kHz) to agitate a fluid, this fluid is made up for this specific job which is to clean and remove any flux left over from recapping. We use deionised water (deionized depending where your from) and professional grade PCB cleaner. An example of the results and the process: [kad_youtube url="https://youtu.be/m4mbKPySfLE" ]   [caption id="attachment_17767" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Amiga Motherboard Before being Recapped & Ultrasonic Cleaned[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_17766" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Refurbished Amiga Motherboard - Recapped & Ultrasonic Cleaned[/caption]     Worldwide shipping available simply contact us for a shipping quote.
