hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : Fifteen years of Sam440ep
   posted by elwood on 21-May-2022 19:11:53 (927 reads)
Dear customers,

It was the year 2007 when we introduced our first “baby”, the Sam440ep. Fifteen years ago. We designed and produced the Sam440ep, a lovely mini-itx motherboard that many enjoyed running AmigaOS 4, AROS and Linux.

At that time we, a bunch of mad amigans, resolved to do our best to bring this hardware to life for all the Amiga Community because it was in dire need of a new computer platform to run AmigaOS.

Without the Sam440ep, the future of AmigaOS would have been very difficult.

After all these years, just as the latest batch of Sam460LE is being produced, we choose to release the electrical schematics of the Sam440ep to the community.

We hope many of you will be happy to see one of the first image of our first project.

The ACube Systems team

Very nice gesture.

15 years, hmm maybe that explains why my SAM440 wont boot after being turned off for a bit more than 1 year.

The clock battery drained after being powered down that long.

I did try and replace the clockbattery, how ever it was not with a new one. But I was under the impression, that it was only an issue with the AmigaONE from Eyetech.

@Yssing

I've found this be common on OS4 PPC boards. For some reason it's common to design it so power goes through the battery without which the firmware cannot be brought up. The X1000 also shares this as when the battery voltage drops it will become faulty, stop repsonding to tower power, and mess with CFE.

Cool! Thanks ACube!

I got my Sam 440ep, 667MHz, in the spring of 2009, and it's still going strong.
