Clockport adapter for Amiga 500.

Thinking of having expansion capabilities like Amiga 1200 users do? Then this Clockport adapter board for Amiga 500 might be something that you are looking for.

RapidRoad USB2.0 High-speed adapter works with it

This adapter board allows every Amiga 500 owner to have a Clockport equipped card internally on a Amiga 500 to be used with any accelerator available. The most known accelerator card these days is the Vampire V500 V2+ and it works without issues the developer revealed to Amitopia.

Clockport adapter for Amiga 500 has also been designed to relocate the CPU more to the back of the Amiga 500, so if you have any expansion like cfís adapters or so, this will avoid hit the keyboard when you close the case. It also include an external power connector to get another power source in case of instability. Which is very handy.

The adapter is tested with the very delicate USB upgrade for classic Amiga’s RapidRoad. This card gives USB2.0 High-speed ports to your classic Amiga. Other cards like the Subway USB upgrade works but is a bit tricky to get going. RTC Adapter works too he reports.

Based on Aminet Clockport hack

This clockport adapter design is based on the Aminet Clockport hack and is also based on the Matthias Heinrichs design.

When you get this adapter you also need to connect int6 signals by yourself. You can take the signals by Gary or CIA odd or from the edge connector too. A specialist in hardware surgery should help you out in this case if you don’t know how to do this. There are many doing such service in the Amiga community.

So! Finally Amiga 500 owners can get some nice classic Amiga hardware running because of this adapter.  But Edu which is behind Arananet is back on 29th of November! Until then his store seems to be closed down during his vacation.

Amitopia is really amazed about all the activity in the Amigascene!
