        FuriaEC020 is an accelerator card for Amiga600 computers designed by Boris Krizma (Slovak Amiga HW developer) It's equipped with CPU Motorola MC68ec020/33 MHz and FPU Motorola MC68882/40 MHz, and with onboard 9.5 megs of fast memory. The quick access to the memory makes this little card a real monster, as it makes the Amiga more than 10 times faster, than the original Amiga600.

       The card has also ability to map rom into the fast ram, tested are roms 256 kB, 512 kB and also 1024 kB. The card also supports for Amiga600's IDE port speedup. The card is easily controlled by tool furiatune (written by Martin Kuchinka.To support inboard PCMCIA port, You need to remove 4 megs of the fast memory by 3 seconds press of Control+Amiga+Amiga.

  • Furia accelerator card - WHITE PCB with FPU
  • no fitting poles included (sockets on Furia are heavy duty - different than other cards use, if you fit furia on cpu, you will be able to lift amiga holding furia in your fingers)

 

 


 

Disclaimer:

  • in order to obtain highest compatibility, original CPU by Motorola and DRAM CHIPS were used.  Chips are non produced nowadays but never used. Type used may vary
  • Every card is tested  with MBR2 test for 2 hours with heastsing covered

Frequently asked questions:
 

  • Question: After installation of the FuriaEC020 accelerator and turning A600 on, Amiga won't do anything, display will stay black:
  • Answer: One of possible causes can be cold link between the accelerator and the A600 cpu. With time, contacts at cpu oxidizes, the cpu is needed to be cleaned up with contact spray or even resoldered.  Also, we had few examples of weak joints between cpu and motherboard. Remember, that FURIA`s cpu socket is rather tight. When inserted on Amiga`s cpu, it pushes cpu`s pins inside, causing lack of contact with solder pad. When furia removed, Amiga workes. Please, check with small tool all pins of cpu are properly soldered ! 

     

    Please, keep in mind, i do assembly all my devices and personally check them before postage. So, You can be sure, You have received working card.

     

  • Question: After turning Amiga on, Amiga starts to boot from hdd/cf, display will unfortunately stay black, and Amiga will crash:
  • Answers:

    1.  It is highly recomended to switch A600 capacitors with new ones, as they are long after it's lifetime, and it causes the instability (All A600s are atleast 20 years old.)

    2.  Simple test : boot from floppy to workbench. If loads, FURIA is OK. Problem is with Your CF CARD

     

    Some CF card does not work, because they are too slow (Kingstone, HAMA or other noname) Good working Microdrive Hitachi, SanDisk. Also noticec, that cheap SD-IDE adapters along with fast sd card do the job. Above problems shall not concern hdd users.

     


    Also, please keep in mind - new installation system for the A600 is suggested.

     

  • Question: My Workbench doesn't work correctly, no programs can be launched, sometimes a software failure message appears:
  • Answer: There is older rom version in A600, than installed Workbench version on hdd/cf.

     

  • Question: System works okay, but I can't run WHDLoad games, after launch a software failure message appears:
  • Answer: You are using old WHDLoad system, update to WHDLoad v 17.x is required.

     

  • Question: Some WHDLoad games after launch freezes, including the display:
  • Answer: Before execution of the game is required to turn off the Furia's FPU. Enter in shell:

    furiatune fpu off reboot

 

  

  • Question: My amiga after cold boot shows only half of memory. After warm reset it shows whole one.
  • Answer:  The card internally measures the time if it exceeds RESET for 2 seconds to switch to 4MB mode. If Amiga has long booting, Furia switches to 4MB. When it is started, it is enough to reset A600 "Ctrl + A + A" and the card will switch to 8MB correctly. Solution: Must re-cap C612 (10uF) change old for new. This C612 is watching time on reset Amiga.

 


FuriaTune:

is a simple tool, that handles all the functions of the FuriaEC020 accelerator card. You can download it directly here:
furiatune (amiga executable), here is it's source code in assembler, and here is the archive containing both executable and the source code. There is no documentation in the archive, as it's very simple and straight forward.
To install, just copy the furiatune into C: directory in Your system. To setup, just enter in your shell window:

1.> furiatune ?

and You will get list of it's options including a simple description. FuriaTune tool should work under all Amiga systems including AmigaOS 1.0 and is tested upto AmigaOS 3.1.
