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.
