Default Crazy germans: Network card for Amiga Phoenix released

Hello,

because germany is such a boring rainy country, we are developing much hardware to have fun.

Just want to inform you that after the Phoenix project (http://phoenix.a1k.org), after the PhoenixFE turboboard, after the Phoenix flickerfixer, after the Phoenix 8MB memory expansion and after the Phoenix-Buddha IDE controller now the Phoenix network card ready is.

Thank you to Andrew J Wilson for the Phoenix Board (a legend will never die!!!) and to George (http://www.gb97816.homepage.t-online.de) and Jens (http://www.jschoenfeld.com/) for all the additional hardware...

You probably mean the Phoenix NIC is finished - and where can we see it? Specs?

See there? Someone invents the Amiga and the Germans have something to do with their time. Idle hands and all that.

10MBit Network Card based on XSurf3 with special Phoenix connector... Take a look in the phoenix a1k.org area. NO official statements will follow. Try to get one or not... :-)

So is this for sale?

You guys seem to be hardware genious in Germany, why not make an Amiga mobo and sell it. I am sure I could scrape together 20 people who wants to buy it :-)

Soooo, any time left to make an A500 network card (+ workbench 1.x drivers) to fit in the expansion slot (and perhaps, if possible, with a pass-through)...
Or a remake of the CD32 FMV module?
Or an USB catweasel controller? (bit ugly, internal diskdrives using outside a computer case, but very useable to those who use laptops and so)

uppy eyes:

George also made a nextgen Phoenix II motherboard, with flickerfixer, IDE controller, 8MB memory, clockport and 030 onboard.

No, most of the people are just developers.

Everything, partlist etc. is avaible on his homepage. So some people can come together and build such a board.

Shipped my last card.

If there are still some people that want such a card, please get in touch with Jens Schoenfeld. http://www.jschoenfeld.com/

Pictures can be found in the showroom from www.a1k.org

Check this thread. There are about 30 of us having boards made and making our own "Phoenix 2".

Who would be interested in a blank pcb for Georg Braun's new A1000 system (GB A1000)

Will this nic work for Phoenix 2 also? I beleive it should.

Georg is also working on a GFX card based on the PicassoII for the Phoenix systems.

YES! And I think there are enough left for every new Phoenix 2 owner.

Phoenix 2 project is very nice, hope for success!

100 + shipping

No, because it is a X-Surf III with special connector.
No self-build project.

Since I'm about to get a GB A1000 board I find this interesting.

I tried to find information about this card over at A1K.org but after hours of browsing Im unable. :boohoo:
I find 030 accelerator, ramcards and flickerfixer but nothing on this ethernet card.

Could you post a link to the thread that contains information/pictures etc. about it?

regards
Bandis

What connector type does it have? Is it just for the A1k Phoenix2 mobo, or will it work on the GB A1000 mobo? Also since the last one is sold, will more be produced for sale, or must we make our own adapters and buy a X-Surf3?

I am sorry, you are right. The thread with pictures is in the closed phoenix area for registered member.

I will make a new thread next week with picture in the showroom.
