Products / Wicher 508i Wicher 508i turbo card has been designed for installation inside Amiga A500/A500+ computer. It supports 68000 CPUs (using PLCC68 package), up to 11 MB of Fast RAM and IDE 2,5” hard drives. CPU clock speed can be set up to 50 MHz. Wicher 508i came into being as a universal solution for users looking for highly-clocked MC68000 classic Amiga CPUs. (Stable configurations running at 50 MHz have been confirmed when paired with MC68HC000 series chip. Unfortunately, not every unit is capable of performing at this clock speeds over longer periods of time.) It also provides a necessary interfaces for connecting 2,5” IDE hard drive (44 PIN) and I2C bus.
AmigaA500/A500+ compatibility (in place of the original CPU),
PLCC68-packaged MC68HC000 chip support
recommended chip version: MC68HC000
supported CPU clock speeds: 7,25,50 MHz
ram memory: 16MB SDRAM (AmigaOS uses 11MB)
