M-Tec 68030 + IDE Controller FOR SALE

NOTE: I am selling my M-Tec 68030 accelerator including IDE controller. Asking price is EUR 199 for these two classic pieces of hardware. If you're interested in buying contact me at this email address. 

Type: Accelerator
Amiga: A500, A2000

CPU: 68020 @ 14 MHz
FPU: 68882 @ 25 MHz
Memory: 4 MB

Features:

  • on-board 68000 CPU for fallback mode
  • 4 MB of memory soldered onto board
  • memory does not autoconfig

Another nice accelerator board, although the 68030 is clocked at only 14 MHz. I've used this board for quite some time together with an M-Tec AT 500 Megabody IDE controller to which it is attached. I bought these 2 boards together and never had the guts to seperate them, as they were connected pretty tight. The M-Tec IDE controller connects to the 68000 socket of the A500 and provides a new 68000 socket to which the M-Tec 68030 is connected.

Unfortunately this accelerator's memory is soldered to the board so you can't expand it further than the available configuration, being either 1 or 4 MB. The memory also does not autoconfig so you need to use AddMem or some similiar utility to add the memory to your system on startup. The memory is mapped within the 68000's 16 MB range, presumably so that it remains addressable when running in 68000 mode. This can however potentially cause conflicts with other memory expansions that utilize the same address space.
