Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : A-EON Technology and ACube Systems strengthen strategic alliance
   posted by amigakit on 22-May-2015 16:15:02 (3144 reads)


A-EON Technology and ACube Systems strengthen strategic alliance
Cardiff, 21st May 2015

Following a series of meetings held over three days in late April at A-EON Technology's Cardiff headquarters, the two companies agreed a joint development plan to ensure the future of Classic and Next-Generation Amiga hardware and software development. In particular they agreed a new hardware and software development roadmap which both companies will jointly fund and support. Their plans include a series of exciting new hardware and software projects starting with the Minimig Plus, an updated version of ACube System's highly successful Amiga 500 FPGA implementation, based on Dennis van Weeren original design concept.

During the summit the companies also visited Ultra Varisys, the developers behind A-EON Technology's Nemo and Cyrus 64-bit PowerPC motherboards, to discuss future hardware trends and opportunities. Max Tretene, ACube's technical guru commented, "During our meetings we had very good MiniMig Plus prototype ideas about near future hardware and software development, really can't wait to realize all of them." While Enrico Vidale, ACube's business manager added, "This strategic alliance can only be good for the whole Amiga community."

Meanwhile A-EON Technology's Managing Director, Matthew Leaman commented, "The combined technical and financial resources of A-EON & ACube should help secure future success." Trevor Dickinson added, "I'm more optimistic now about the future Amiga scene than I have been for a very long time. All I can say is, bring it on!"

Microsoft will do nothing for us even being Amiga developers in the past.

So keep the ball rolling!!!

While I very much welcome their commitment for the Amiga platform in general I would love to see "some more" commitment to get working drivers for their hardware, like the OS4 ethernet driver for the X1000.

Why is network support on os4 so poor no descent WiFi and now I here built in network port in x1000 is not working. I hope all sockets on x5000 are supported at launch.

It works. It even works well for some people. But it isn't perfect and can't be released yet.

I heard there'll be no drivers for onboard sound on the X5000.

AFAIK: This is because there is no onboard sound hardware on the x5000, which makes sense in my eyes as PCI soundcards are well supported and cheaply available.

Still no word on position taken by Acube and A-Eon
towards company that provides AmigaOS4 and branding
(I think name started with H ? ).

Pretty sure there is no legal reason not to put in a good word
but from what I read plan is same as always , make hardware
and bundle 1 copy of AmigaOS4 per unit.I don't think it will
help much , i was kinda under impression that said company
was maybe important to said hardware ?

So it's PPC 'til the end of the world, right?

The end of the world is nigh, so don't worry about PPC much.

@scOOby & rod

I wish we get audio drivers for RadeonHD. It would solve more than one issue...

(modern freescale chips tend to lack i2s for audio, but it can be solved via various ways... interesting solution would be a xorro card with audio + xena prototyping options integrated. Perhaps Arduino shields compatible even....)


btw. Does RadeonHD audio work on PPC Linux?
(I may have asked before, but I've forgot it)

it works on x86/x64:
http://www.ehow.com/how_7368950_set-audio-ati-radeon-hd.html
linux stuff:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver
"The open-source radeon driver supports HDMI audio on Radeon HD 6000-series and earlier chips."

(there should be "enough" sound in Radeon HD card, this shows options when windows is used: http://cdn.overclock.net/b/b4/b422b5fe_vbattach212863.png )

@KimmoK

Yes.
working on Sam460ex with video cards up to Radeon HD 6670 and Kernels up to 3.19.x .
Problems with Radeon HD 7000 and up and also with kernels 4.0.0 and up.
http://forum.hyperion-entertainment.biz/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=2863

USB audio also works and that is what I use on the Sam460ex with my Radeon HD 7750.
