The standalone will need an implementation of the Amiga graphics and Audio chipset, so a version of Gold 3(+)

I think (on the accelerators) graphics and audio registers will 'move' to the FPGA, whilst the CIAs and other IO related registers will be maintained in the motherboard chipset (a few may need to be maintained wholly or partly on both, I'm not sure). The memory management of the core will need to de...

There are mechanical and firmware issues with the Vampire 2 in the CDTV. IIRC the board clashes with some capacitors, either these need to be replaced with lower ones or they can be moved to the other side of the motherboard. The extended ROM that provides the CD functionality is not currently suppo...

The mounting solutions supplied with the later V2 model initially consisted of small 3D printed blocks that were screwed on to slots in the A600 motherboard (intended for the hard drive caddy). The motherboard is removed from the A600 and the screws are put in from underneath into the blocks on the ...

I wonder if a replacement motherboard would make more sense as an option for the ST line? When the ST started to be discussed as a possible Apollo-Core machine I had a look at machines (I've never owned and hardly ever seen any ST's in real life). I found that there was a lot of different board layo...

The new audio hardware for the Vampire is known as Pamela. It is in development but is expected to provide 8 16bit voices with 6bit volume. Other features include stereo mixing, 24bit mixing precision plus 4-times oversampling. Further discussion http://www.apollo-core.com/knowledge.php?b=1¬e=7088

The original Vampire 600 board was open sourced and there was a Polish(?) version of it was made. The specifications for the stand alone Vampire are likely to be better than you suggested (newer FPGA and more RAM). Til and BigGun have some history that's not worth going into. BigGun has said that th...

Tablets and/or phones. Issues include support for touch control beyond mouse/pointer control with the existing operating systems and all the other software/firmware required, obtaining parts without buying an off the shelf tablet/phone and swapping out the main board (RF chips/parts for a phone may ...

Replacement motherboards for existing Amiga case(s). The obvious one to start with is the A1200 as new cases are now possible. If cooperation and funding could be found a new lower case molding with sockets openings layout and labels appropriate to a new Vampire board (HDMI, Joysicks, ethernet, barr...

I've always wanted a "modern" Amiga laptop so how about a motherboard for the upcoming Olimex TERES-I Do-It-Yourself Open Source Hardware and Software Laptop https://www.olimex.com/Products/DIY-Laptop/ . I'm not sure if the open source nature of the project would be an issue for the closed source Ap...
