OpenAmiga600RamExpansion is an Open Hardware 1 MB Chip RAM Expansion for the Commodore Amiga 600 Computer with optional Real Time Clock.
The Amiga 600 computer by Commodore originally came with 1 MB of Chip RAM. Like all "compact" Amiga models, it has a trapdoor in the bottom, through which a memory expansion can be installed, bringing the chip RAM to a maximum of 2 MB.
Back in the day, some expansions also came with a Real-Time Clock (RTC), which allowed the Amiga to keep track of the current date and time, which is most useful if you use AmigaDOS a lot.
OpenAmiga600RamExpansion is an Open Hardware implementation of such an expansion, including the RTC.
OpenAmiga600RamExpansion is Open Hardware. If you make any modifications to the board, please contribute them back.
If you buy the component kit, this is what you will get:
Note that RAM chips are NOT included by default, if you need them, make sure to select them among the product options!
You can also get sockets for the RAM chips as an option. Note that these are not easy to solder!

The RTC Kit includes:
Note that these kits are not suitable for the faint-hearted, since they require soldering some surface-mount components (0805 and SOJ-40 packages).
