Hardware News   Hardware News : A-EON and Varisys announce Partnership
   posted by Rogue on 18-Jun-2010 11:43:05 (25079 reads)
London, 17th June 2010

A-EON Technology CVBA and Varisys Ltd., are pleased to announce their partnership in the development of the AmigaOne X1000 hardware platform for AmigaOS.

Varisys Ltd were identified as the ideal hardware partner for the ambitious project to create a new, genuinely modern computer system to run AmigaOS4.x in late 2008, even before the formal creation of A-EON Technology. In early 2009, Varisys Ltd began work on developing a new PowerPC based motherboard, codenamed Nemo, which would form the heart of the new AmigaOne X1000 computer. After months of design and testing, Varisys delivered the first Nemo prototypes in late 2009 and have now completed a Revision 2 design, which will be supplied to beta testers under the recently announced Extended Beta Test Program.


A-EON Technology director Trevor Dickinson said "We are very pleased to reveal Varisys as our AmigaOne X1000 hardware partner. They have a proven track record for delivering high quality products on time and to budget. Their extensive experience with PowerPC and parallel processing solutions makes them our ideal technical partners, and with their help we can revitalise the AmigaOne platform". Varisys Managing Director Paul Gentle said "We are equally pleased to be working with A-EON Technology and we believe our previous background and experience will prove vital in helping to make the AmigaOne X1000 a success" Adam Barnes, Varisys co-founder, added. "The Nemo motherboard design introduced some new and interesting technical challenges but we are extremely pleased with the results. Revision 2 of the Nemo board has recently been completed and will form a solid foundation for the A1-X1000 and beyond".

Visitors to the VCF Exhibition at Bletchley Park on Saturday, June the 19th, will be able to meet some of the Varisys team on the joint A-EON Technology / Hyperion Entertainment stand.

Varisys have customers in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, military applications and telecommunications, and are perhaps best known for their development of the PowerPC G4 motherboard used in the immensely popular WholeHog III lighting control console.

It couldn't originally be attached to the news item that Rogue submitted. It is being sent over to us so that it can be linked to within the article.

Now this is a fun press release, and it puts the project into perspective: by geeks for geeks. Much better than all the world domination garbage bandied about by the punters.

I TOLD YOU SO!!!

I wouldn't be one to say this usually, but seeing as I was hounded for telling you for a fact that Varisys was the mobo creator as far back as January 9th 2010.

http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=30452&forum=2#533135

Good luck guys.

I guess all that is left to reveal is whether Thom from OSNews has to eat his socks.
He mentioned in the last OSNews podcast that a mysterious package from A-Eon was to be opened on a particular date.
I wonder what that may imply....hmmmm.....PASemi.

Who's to say that Varisys does not have a stockpile.
