Unity alias Zorro1200 is an Autoconfig(TM) board for
Amiga. It makes it possible to use Melody1200
and other expansions initially done for A1200's clock port
for ZorroII/III Computers.
A special property is variable bus speed. It's possible to
run expansions nearly as slow as in A1200 but it's even possible
to go up to twice that speed known from old Zorro boards like
Melody-Z2 or Prelude.
It has got a HQ Serial Interface Onboard (design
is taken from Twister 1200). If
there enough pre-orders (numbers mean reduction in production
costs) we'll be able to add a HQ parallel Interface for free,
Why it's a must have:
Unity together with:
- Unity-Net 10 results in an
efficient, small low-priced 10Base-2 or 10Base-T solution
for Amiga different to other solutions Full Duplex-Mode
(20Mbps) is supported.
- Unity-Net 100 probably is
the first and only 10/100BaseTx solution for Amiga. It's
- Melody1200 gives the final move for Melody 1200.
beeing the market leader regarding audio precission + bandwidth inside
Load is much lower compared to the traditional clock-port connection at A1200.
This even means there is room for a Multichannel variant Melody1200.
Do you want ous to do such solution? Tell ous!
- Twister1200 primary results in higher throughput.
The mayor topic is having a real Serial High-End Interface at Zorro-Amiga by not wasting a Zorro slot (since there is the possibility of having an on-board
interface that option should be taken first loosing no connector). If there is anybody out there who
likes to have three very fast serial interfaces this is possible now.
- combinations of these and future boards gives maximum flexibility by using only one Zorro slot
