Indivision AGA MK3 Flickerfixer for Amiga CD32 and A4000D

 £ 183.33 Excl. VAT

Indivision AGA MK3 flickerfixer for Amiga CD32** and A4000D (also available for the Amiga A1200 and A4000T). For installation in an A4000D, a jumper needs to be bent aside (see further down). Sporting both a VGA and HDMI socket (not used at the same time) and a fully digital output which lets you connect to a modern TV or a DVI monitor. Finally, you can connect your favourite computer to a modern flat screen and use super-hires resolutions on your workbench in full colour!

Indivision AGA MK3 does everything that it’s predecessors did and much more! With the only exception of A2024 monitor modes, all Amiga screen modes are supported and can be sent to a digital or analogue monitor at almost any frame rate, either using standard VESA modes, or using custom output frequencies and size at the user’s choice. Even custom screen modes like HighGFX can be used: Workbench resolutions of 1280×1024 pixels are possible without buying a graphics card.

Further, Indivision AGA MK3 supports synchronisation of the output signal with the computer’s V-Sync signal, which was not possible with the predecessor models. This allows silky-smooth animations and perfect scrolling without tearing. These fully synchronised modes may not be compatible with all VGA- or DVI monitors (mainly because they are 50Hz for PAL machines), but 50Hz is standard for all TVs with high-definition digital input.

Indivision AGA Mk3 is plugged over the Lisa chip. For the first time, a second (optional!) connection is required to take advantage of all features of the product: An additional adapter is clipped on top of a CIA chip to route keyboard signals to the flicker fixer. This gives way for a huge practical improvement over previous versions of the flicker fixer: You can now make small adjustments to the output picture format, including positioning and resizing of the output picture without the need to load the configuration tool. You can now open a simple menu using a hot-key combination, make adjustments with the keyboard or mouse and then exit this live configuration menu – all this without leaving the game or demo that’s currently running.

Output screen modes can be saved “per input screen mode”, so you can adjust your favourite Workbench resolution perfectly, while not affecting the settings you’ve chosen for PAL and NTSC games. Settings are saved in the flash of the flicker fixer, so they survive a reboot and/or power-cycle of the computer. As opposed to Indivision AGA MK2, more than one output mode can be saved, and instead of making manual adjustments using the live configuration menu described before, you can just “zap” through pre-sets that are ideal for a specific game or demo. This allows you to see the difference of intensity settings for the built-in scanline effect, or you can compare the scaling capabilities of your monitor with the new built-in scaler of Indivision AGA MK3.

Another improvement over the predecessor is automatic monitor recognition: The configuration tool can detect what size of monitor is connected and make suggestions for ideal output frequencies that are within the specifications of the monitor. This reduces the “first setup” to a matter of minutes.

Whats included:

  1. Flickerfixer for A4000D(*)/CD32(**)
  2. Adapter board for high-definition digital and VGA output
  3. Adapter board for CIA chip
  4. Connection cables between all boards
  5. Stainless steel back plate for HDMI/VGA output
  6. Short instructions
  7. A transfer method for the configuration tool (free download from individual Computers wiki)
  8. (Optional) HighGFX software package from Aminet (free download for higher Workbench resolutions)

 

(*)This flickerfixer will only fit into an A4000D after jumper J214 has been bent aside. This jumper was meant for a future chipset that was never released.

(**)For installation in a CD32, live config is only available if three solder-connections have been made, as this model does not have CIA chips. For accurate audio filter reproduction on HDMI TVs, a fourth solder connection must be made. Further, it was reported that select main boards of the CD have the crystal oscillator very close to the Lisa chip, requiring the user to move the part to the side by a fraction of a millimeter. A soldering iron may be required to accomplish this.

CA-PSU Commodore Amiga Individual Computers
CA-PSU Amiga A500, A500 Plus, A600, A1200
CA-PSU Amiga A500, A500 Plus, A600, A1200 (CA-PSU stands for Compact Amiga Power Supply Unit), where "compact" designates the three target computers A500, A600 and A1200. It is the first power supply on the market that fully complies with the original Commodore specifications, introducing cable drop compensation for best regulation that even settles the voltage drop in the input filter of the target computers. This means that the voltage on the main 5V rail will never deviate more then 0.9%, measured inside the computer - no matter if the computer is in vanilla configuration or heavily expanded. Conventional power supplies will either supply too-high voltage to a vanilla machine, or too-low voltage to an expanded machine, causing malfunction or even defects. This cannot happen with our cable drop compensation technology. Technical data in short:
  • 5V, 5A, ripple/noise 50mV max. (typically 30mV)
  • Overload on 5V tolerated up to 8A for 30 seconds
  • 5V load regulation <0.6% typical, max. 0.9% under overload condition
  • 12V up to 4A
  • -12V, 0.1A
  • Modern, high-efficiency DC-DC converter technology
  • Total output power up to 60W
  • Fanless, silent, extremely low heat
CA-PSU is a two-brick solution: One mains-connected power brick and the CA-PSU converter box with the switch and square 5-pin DIN connector to the computer. This moves the power switch a lot closer to the computer, reducing the probability of inadvertent switching, for example if the power supply is under the table near your feet. CA-PSU has the best overall efficiency on the market, with a worst-case efficiency of 80.1% (best case >82.5%). The best competing product peaks at just over 70%, and some original Commodore power supplies have an efficiency of only 55%. This means that with our CA-PSU, there's less total heat, less power consumption and a longer life expectancy because there is less stress on the components. Naturally, CA-PSU features over-voltage protection - every modern power supply does. We wouldn't consider it worth mentioning, but this protection is part of a more complex block to protect your valuable classic gear: There are two critical moments that need to be taken care of: Switching on and off. CA-PSU has a controlled 5V ramp-up when switching on, ensuring safe power-up of heavily-expanded machines. Traditional power supplies without such a controlled start-up ramp tend to "swing in" to the target voltage, which might cause malfunction or even defects. Further, switching off will start a short timer, ensuring that the next switch-on event can't happen until a few seconds after switching off. This ensures that capacitors in the computer and expansion gear are sufficiently discharged, and switching on won't cause 3.3V regulators of modern expansions to oscillate, which may cause severe damage. In the unlikely event that these elaborate precautions fail, CA-PSU is covered by a German product liability insurance. This new production run of CA-PSU includes an international power brick that directly plugs into the socket (no mains cable). International adapters included are:
  • Central Europe
  • United Kingdom
  • Australia
  • USA
CA-PSU is compatible with worldwide grid voltages and frequencies (110-240V AC and 50 or 60Hz).

X-Surf 100 Network card for Commodore Amiga
X-Surf 100 for all Commodore Amigas with Zorro Slots
X-Surf 100 is a networking card for all Amiga computers with Zorro slots. For the Amiga A2000 or Zorro-daughterboards for the A1200, it will run at Z2 speed. If installed in an Amiga A3000, A4000 or the respective tower versions, it will run at Z3 speeds, which is up to five times faster than Z2. Key features:
  • 100MBit physical link rate
  • Sana-II device for use with OS2.0 up to OS3.9
  • Officially supported in the Linux-m68k kernel
  • Space- and power-saving design
  • Gold plated Zorro contacts and stainless steel metal bracket
  • Local expansion port for our high-speed USB module "RapidRoad"
Drivers can be downloaded from here. Manual here Wiki here Requirements:
  • TCP/IP stack such as Miami DX, AmiTCP, Genesis (included in OS3.9) or Roadshow
  • Sufficient RAM and 68020 CPU or higher
  • Kickstart/Workbench 2.0 or higher
  • File transfer method for drivers to be transferred to the Amiga
Transfer rates of over 1600kBytes/s have been measured with the X-Surf-100. Please note that the classic Amiga architecture and the current TCP/IP stacks for the Amiga don't allow saturating a 100MBit Ethernet link. Performance in your system may be slower due to CPU performance and programs running in multitasking. Please note that we cannot guarantee the X-Surf-100 to work in third-party Zorro boards as used in tower conversions, such as boards made by Eagle, Mikronik, RBM or Elbox. The X-Surf-100 may or may not work in these boards. Although the bus interface is designed to tolerate many mistakes that the vendors of those third-party boards have made, we can only guarantee proper operation in original Commodore daughter boards. Should the card fail to work in such a third-party board, you may have to close the Z2 jumper and downgrade to Z2 speed. For operation in Z3 computers, the Buster-11 chip is recommended. If there is only one DMA master in the Z3 system, a Buster-9 may also be used. Owners of the Merlin graphics card must have the latest hardware patches installed. Owners of the Mediator PCI/Zorro daughterboard must close the "swap" jumper. The X-Surf-100 is officially supported in the Linux-m68k kernel.
