Topic: Amiga FPGA accelerator
There are lot of people who helped me with this project. Some of them helped posting valuable information's on various forums about processors, coding, PCB designs... I will not state their names because I had problems with some of them because they told me that I m using their names to promote this Accelerator. That was not mine intention and I just wanted to thank them in some of my videos or articles. I have not stated the names of people for reasons that someone realizes that they directly participate in the project and that I expect them to work for me. I thank them for the articles that they wrote about Amiga, and for all the help they gave me via E-mail to figure out problems. I am so grateful for the excellent articles and papers I've read that I simply had to provide their names. I wanted to somehow pay tribute to those who like me spend hours and hours trying to perform the impossible. I had no intention to offend someone or use his name to promote the project. I just wanted people to see that I am working on this project for months. But somehow all of that was misunderstood... There are some of the people who supported project directly by donating hardware, software or equipment needed to finish this project and I would like to thank them.

Comment: Provided to support your work on Vampire A600. Just don't put pressure on yourself, and finish when you get there :) Maybe get someone to distribute this for you so you can just take pleasure in 'tinkering' rather than 'moving boxes'. Best wishes Adrian.

Comment: Nice work in progress, Try to design board so that it takes advantage of HDD cradle holes to help secure the board and also check that your board can coexist with other peoples hw too. I can help with the board design itself but not actual HW.
ShK donated A500 motherboard and two keyboards, two A600 keyboards, four Amiga 600 motherboards, ROM's, Amiga 1200 motherboard, LCD TV, PLCC-68 sockets, Amiga 4000 and 2000 keyboards, Workbench floppy disks, PS2 keyboard interface for A600... It is hard to mention everything what he sent to me in process, as he said, clearing his apartment. All valuable things who helped a lot in the process of development Amiga hardware.
kipper2k donated about 50 PLCC-68 sockets, IDE adapters and lot of other Amiga related parts. He became one of the most important supporters of the complete project always there to help. Since beginning of the 2014 he maintains production of Vampire 600 accelerator.
Chinners donated complete, working Amiga 600.
mfilos donated non working Amiga 600 board for spares&repair.
cpiac64 donated working Amiga 600 motherboard.
cgugl donated Amiga 4000 motherboard and keyboard adapter.
Finnish Amiga Users Group donated full working A4000 + all other peripherals and tools needed to continue with this project.
Lord Aga donated tank mouse.
Mr_Acid who help me all the time with parts, equipment. Thank God for his basement...
Djole donated some special soldering flux, and solder tip and those things opened my mind to realize that I didn't have right tools for this job :)
Schematics & PCB design
Vovanius helped with understanding Voltage Level Translations, Clock signals and much much more.
Hattie Spetla from Texas Instruments provided me lot of information's regarding their products that I can use in design.
Harald van Veghel from NXP was always there to give me additional info about transceivers and other devices that they produce.
Soft cores and additional software
Jason McMullan helped with understanding USB controllers and their usability on Amiga and providing drivers that can be used together with Vampire design
dwh helped with understanding VHDL, correcting my codes and understanding basics of FPGA devices...
timn helped with TG68 core and understanding some of generated signals.
robinson5 helped with understanding FSM in VHDL.
Those people don't participate in this project directly, they don't work for me and they don't expect any credit for their help. They just wanted to help me somehow to finish this project, huge for one man.
