  • hello Jens,


    Hope not to ask a stupid question, but I know lot of people in the Amiga community are waiting for your psu to be back in stock. Is there a ball park prevision when it could be available again?


    Thanks,

    Tanino

  • We finally got the DC-DC converter chips the week before Xmas, and PCB production is currently going on, after tiny changes to the board have already been verified on a sample PCB: We've had a support case where the short-circuit protection was triggering due to "too good new capacitors" on an A1200 board, and I wanted to fix that for the next production run.


    Since these are 2-layer aluminium core boards, production is not as fast as standard FR-4 boards. I hope to have the empty boards here in Germany during the last week of January, and only when all components have arrived at the assembly place, I can hope for a produciton time slot at the assembly house. I currently don't see these being available before mid-February. I won't launch pre-orders unless all dates have been confirmed by all parties involved.

  • Hi Jens,


    Do you have an idea of when the CA-PSU might be available again?


    Since a few weeks I have an another A12OO in my collection with original Commodore PSU, however when I connect this PSU to my expanded A1200 (Indi MK3, Blizzard 1230 IV, fan,...) I get a blurry image which I don't have as I use the CA-PSU.

    I also want to expand this "new" A1200 with a new Indi MK 3 and a Blizzard 1230 IV that I still have here.

    I would rather order this order in 1 time so that I do not have to pay transport costs twice.

  • Working on it. After assembly of the boards, there's the 12V PSUs (which have been postponed - guess what, due to chip shortage), but we also have to make cases and boxes. It's all WIP, and I'm pushing as hard as I can.

  • Thx Jens for your answer 👍

    Was that me Jens? I am still unable to use my PSU on my A1200. I'd almost given up on any sort of fix.

  • I had a board from a German customer here - we did refund a few (2 or three) customers before that. Not sure if you were among the refunded?

    No I was not refunded. I purchased 2 at the time and both work fine on my A500's, but not on my A1200. You were getting capacitors caps from Amigakit to test and apparently these never arrived. I seriously just gave up chasing because it felt hopeless at the time. I believe I was the first or second case with this issue. I guess I'm out of luck all round :(

  • Right, AmigaKit never sent those caps to us, but my guess is that it boils down to the cap on -12V being too low-ESR and the overcurrent protection tripping right when you turn on.


    We can retro-fit the fix on the older CA-PSU, but that's a paid upgrade. The over-current protection needs to be delayed during the switch-on period when caps are charged. This is not necessary on a stock A1200 or on an A1200 that has been re-capped with the correct parts. It's only the ones that are equipped with *much* lower ESR caps that make the over current protection trip.


    So no, you're not out of luck - I'm willing to help.

    I'll send you an email Jens. I'd be keen to send back the PSU's I have to get them tweaked if the price is reasonable.
