PiStorm Adaptor Amiga A500 – A500 Plus
£49.99 Incl. VAT£41.66 Excl. VAT
PiStorm Adaptor is designed to connect to the Raspberry Pi 3A + (not included but available as an option below). Placed in the DIP64 (CPU) socket of your Amiga A500, A500 Plus or A2000 in conjunction with the Raspberry Pi, it can emulate the operation of the 68020/68030/68040 processor. The software running on PiOS greatly extends the functionality of the Amiga – adding FAST memory, RTG (graphics card) and a network card. PiStorm is designed for Amiga computers (A500 / A500 Plus / A1500 / A2000), but should work with any 16-bit computer equipped with a 68000 CPU socket (FC adapter lines are not currently used / supported by firmware and cannot be guaranteed to work properly on systems with use them). Overall performance with the current use of “Musashi” as a 68k processor emulator is around 70-80 MHz 68030.
This adapter requires:
- Raspberry Pi model 3A
- 32Gb SD Card configured to boot in to WB
All available as an option below
