lecture: The Ultimate Amiga 500 Talk
Amiga Hardware Design And Programming
The Amiga was one of the most powerful and wide srpead computers in the late 80's. This talk explains its hardware design and programming.
The Amiga 1000 appeared in 1985 and was followed by the Amiga 500 a few years later, which had the same design concept but was a little bit more powerful. The hardware design was highly sophisticated and powerful and was years ahead to other computers at the time then.
Equipped with the Motorola 68000 Microprocessor as the CPU which was internally a full 32 bit processor and several additional co-processors for various complex DMA tasks it was perfect for graphics-intensive software.
This talk explains the hardware in detail, how all those processors interacted and how it was programmed.
