|Looking at the number of views that this thread has generated, it shows that there's still life in Amiga. New hardware and software coming along nicely. Most important are the great people who are doing things and a growing community. Very much looking forward to my Predator Amiga.

|Hi all, thank you for your ongoing patience! We now have 100x assembled PCBs with us, and are testing the first fully produced board :)
A new video is posted showing the final board, that you will be available for purchase in the coming weeks.

|!!! THE FIRST ULTIMATE EXPANSION BOARDS ARE NOW SHIPPING !!!
Thank you everyone for your encouragement and enthusiasm. We are shipping small batches as they are ready (it takes several hours per board to fully assemble and test). Those who have registered and responded to the earlier emails are being contacted directly when their boards are ready.
Please have patience - we have quite a backlog to send out, and the webpage to update with manuals, videos, software, and pricing etc.

|It's a great addition to the V4 SA.
I was extremely fortunate to be able to be in the first tiny batch of boards which were available to Team members for testing/evaluation.
It arrived on Christmas Eve.
I have posted some pics & information on the V4 Facebook group. Can't get a link to that post to add here unfortunately.
Long story short, hope is that there will be another, bigger batch ready to start shipping to the general public end of this week.

Can't wait to get mine. :-)
Will this Power Supply work with the V4 Ultimate Expansion Board?

|I have found it.
"Each board ships with a high quality DC power supply."

|You may need the proper IEC (standard 3 terminal female plugs into the PSU) for your country. I had to provide my own. Not a huge deal, as I have box(es) of old cables and wiring here.

Thanks for your reply Tim!

The first tranch of boards have now been shipped to users who registered interest before 31 December 2021!
We are now working our way through 2022 registrations. If you first registered interest BEFORE 31 December 2021 and have NOT been contacted, please email us again (firstname.lastname@example.org) as our emails to you since you first registered may have been put into your spam folder.

|Got my Expansion Board yesterday. Very fast delivery and very good quality. Installation was easy (following the video). The board and the case are very nice optically: silver case with glass top, a nice glowing vampire „V“ and a small screen that indicates temperature and power consumption. Nice detail: you can easily switch between Fahrenheit and degree Celsius by tapping twice on the front power button. All ports and connectors are easily accessible from the outside (mouse DB9 connectors, USB, serial ports, midi, microSD and - very nice - CF card). I particularly appreciate the analogue audio: the quality is much better than via DIGITAL-VIDEO. Very well done, Kenji, and thanks again for all the good work!

|*ALL ULTIMATE EXPANSION BOARD ORDERS HAVE BEEN FULLFILLED OR REPSONDED TO!!!*
We are extremely happy to report that we now have enough boards and systems produced to have fulfil all registrations (dating back to 2021!). Over half of the initial PCB production run is now sitting in the hands of users. Boards are now running in 16 different countries :)
Thank you to everyone who registered for your patience, and thanks to everyone for the kind feedback.
So what's next? We are finishing the remaining boards/systems, and we will finally be able to start promoting them and selling them through retail (for Europe, they will be available from Apollo Computer). With going through retail, prices will go up a little as we are currently selling them direct to users at cost.
Once we get time to breathe after producing sufficient boards, we will start working on some new firmware features for the on-board micro to enable more customisation of the board from the Amiga side.
Feel free to check out the earlier videos here:
Or find out more about the boards here:
Thanks everyone for making this board a success!

|Just want to say that I'm very happy with the case/board and it was very easy to install. Pressed the button on and it worked first time. Celebrated with a long blast of Jake and Peppy. Looking forward to trying MIDI and the sound jack.
