CS530 and CS540: New A500 turbo cards

The Poles Szymon 'Cizar' Paprocki and Andrzej 'Sellen' Rogozynski are working on Turbo cards for the Amiga 500, which are to be equipped with processors of the type 68030, 68040 or 68060.
Prototypes already exist. The cards are still in early stage of development.



Specs:
  • MC68030 (with FPU MC68882) and 040 processors, also planned 68060
  • SDRAM or DDR chips as FastRAM, driven by a Spartan6 FPGA controller
  • Slot for CF cards
  • IDE connector (40 pin)
  • An ARM ST32H7 microcontroller with 400Mhz, whose exact function is not yet clear. Translations of third parties from Polish speak of "a new chipset with access to the entire FastRAM".
  • NAU8822AYG-based sound card with MP3 decoder and AHI implementation. The original Amiga signal is to be looped through the map
  • USB
  • UEXT
  • WIFI (ESP 32 WROOM)
  • MicroSD card slot
  • 12-bit stereo sampler
  • Hardware-side MPEG decoding
  • HDMI output
