What daughterboard? The V4 standalone is a single board solution as far as I know.

You mean the Vampire 1200?

I realize that it's probably not correct to call the V1200 a "daughterboard" though, as I understand it would probably be more correct to call the original A1200 mobo a "daughterboard" or rather slave-board in that case.

I was thinking there was a daughterboard to the v4 that gave it more ports and such,I thought it hooked into the 68000 pin-Bus and sat underneath the v4 like a sanwich. Maybe it was a pizza-dream a while ago.
Apologies.

  Apologies.

Are you thinking of the USB daughter board for the MiSTer FPGA?

      No, there is one expansion port, and non standard (non std as PCI, Amiga CPU port) that could be used for Wi Fi support and such small expansions, but nothing yet announced. In V2 series it was used to add LAN. Its more like headers.
    See EXTERNAL LINK     
      No additional USBs and DB9 are mentioned for now, you have to manage with onboard ones and maybe USB expanders if they work. Note that keyboard needs to take 1/2 USBs, so I would use DB9/Atari port for Amiga mouse.
   
    There is a new growing V4 entry, compatible h/w
    EXTERNAL LINK 
  I see Keyrah_V2 is tested and working. Could this do the magic and have a1000/2000/3000/4000 keyboard connected to USB on V4?

Anything more Hi-Res?

I am in a process of writting an article to Amiga Future about several FPGAs I owned/owe.  As soon as V4 is out, I will get it, check out, then add its section and send the article out to AF.  So I need a Hi-Res picture anyway.

That certainly was one but looks like an older revision given the 2017 date on the silkscreen. Plus I thought the current ones were black pcbs.

Hi Michal,
I just thought it would be nice for you to see and use a board for the article. So if you live close to someone having a card - you could meet and see it live ...

That would be definitely great!!  If You have any information about Polish V4 owners or betatesters, just let me know!!

Dear Apollo Team,

Please provide a hires picture of the V4 Standalone.

If everything goes fine, my FPGA article will be listed in September’s Amiga Future.

So please provide the adequate quality for the printout!!

Thanks!

Would love to see some images of the new revision PCB, especially if they're black!
