Default Indivision AGA Mk2 A4000/CD32, 'flickerfixer' (aka de-interlacer) for Amiga 4000 and




Indivision AGA Mk2 A4000/CD32

Flicker Fixer for Amiga 4000 and CD32

The Indivision AGA Mk2 A4000/CD32 is the successor to the discontinued Indivision AGA A4000/CD32 flicker fixer. It can be used with the Amiga 4000 (desktop version, there's the Indivision AGA Mk2 A1200/4000T for use with the A4000T) and the CD32, other Amiga models are not supported.

DVI-I Connector:
The Indivision AGA Mk2 sports a DVI-I connector instead of the usual VGA socket. DVI-I provides digital as well as analog signals, so you can use modern TFT displays, older TFT displays with analog input or CRT monitors alike (the latter two with a VGA adapter).

Performance and Compatibility:
The output pixel clock can go up to 135 MHz (the former Indivision AGA only allowed up to 71 MHz), the data rate reaches more than 480 MBytes/s peak performance (used to be 330 MBytes/s peak); 50 Hz modes (e.g. PAL) can be promoted to 60+ Hz and thus be displayed on modern monitors; 16 MBytes framebuffer, entirely addressable (used to be 12 MBytes previously); supports S-Hires (*) and full 24-bit colour depth; unlike other internal flicker fixers, the Indivision AGA Mk2 supports the BorderBlank flag.

On Screen Display:
A subtle semitransparent OSD replaces the splash screen of the predecessor model.

Perfect Fit:
The Indivision AGA Mk2 is plugged over the Lisa chip, no other connection to the motherboard is required (unlike other internal flicker fixers that also require a connection to Alice). Due to a much enhanced 84-pin PLCC socket being used, the Indivision fits like a glove and won't come off easily.

Energy Efficient:
Modern FPGA technology and low power consumption (1.2V core voltage) make sure to save energy and avoid heat problems.

Reconfigurable Logic:
Hardware updates can (*) be downloaded from the Internet. Even timing corrections are possible, allowing the Indivision AGA Mk2 to adapt even to the strangest chipset combinations (e.g. Lisa chips made by NCR).

(*) Important Note: The first batch of Indivision AGA Mk2 is shipped without a configuration program, and the current version of the flash program shipped with the device is rather an expert tool than an example of user friendliness. Furthermore, the Indivision AGA Mk2 can currently only display PAL and NTSC modes accurately, support for other screen modes is still being worked on. You should only buy the Indivision AGA Mk2 if you are an experienced user and if you can download updates from the Internet and transfer them to your Amiga.

Very nice!

The second coolest damned thing I've seen in a while. (The first being the Indi 1200 MK2.)

I wonder what the 10-pin header next to the socket is used for...

Well I know what it should be, a clockport for my CD32

I'm guessing it's some kind of debuging port reserved for factory and developer use.

It's probably the JTAG connector for the FPGA

Love it... but €200?
