Motorola 68000 emulator for Amiga and other 68000 based computers.
Attention: This product might require basic knowledge of the linux command line.
The PiStorm project is in early state of development, therefore some of the features might be buggy, others might change/improve as development moves forward.
Preconfigured SD image available. Does not includes the SD card
More details can be found at the official github site:
The PiStorm its a Raspberry Pi based device which emulates the Motorola 68000 CPU found inside the Amiga, Atari ST, Mac Classic, etc.
It consist on a board which internally replaces the Amiga 68000 CPU. On top of this board a Raspberry Pi 3A+ is connected through GPIO header.
When paired with the Amiga, the PiStorm provides CPU accelleration, virtual hard disk (through disk images resident on the SD), WiFi, RTG graphics, 128Mb fast ram, RTC and other enhancements.
The device is plug and play if you use the preconfigured SD image we provide. You will need some Linux command line experience to setup the WiFi.
There is just enough clearence to install the PiStorm directly on the CPU socket and close the Amiga case without problem. Nevertheless the keyboard metal backplate will most likely touch the Ras-Pi. To avoid any electrical issues is recommended to put a sheet of plastic between the keyboard and the PiStorm, just in the area they come in contact.

- Soft ROM (can load kickrom image from SD card, replacing the on-board kickrom)
- Available with or without the Raspberry Pi 3A+
SD setup image available for download.
Attention: The Raspberry Pi has high power requirements. Your Amiga power supply (as well as your Amiga itself) need to be in good working condition.
