Description

When connecting the Pi to the PiStorm, please orient it as pictured below and ensure the GPIO pins are aligned correctly. If the pins are misaligned when power is applied, you risk damaging the GPIO on your Pi. You can use 11mm standoffs to support the Pi if required.

If experiencing any under-voltage issues, you can provide additional power to the device (e.g. by connecting it to the Amiga’s floppy power connector using a splitter cable). If you still experience throttling issues, then please measure the 5V rail on your machine whilst under load. The Pi requires 4.75-5.25V to run reliably. If your 5V rail is too low, it is recommended to use a modern PSU such as a Mean Well (PT or RT models have an adjustable 5V rail). WARNING! When applying additional power, please ensure it is taken from the same PSU as the Amiga itself (for example, take the power from the motherboards floppy power connector). DO NOT use an external 5V or USB power supply. Also, please ensure the power connections of your cable are correct (or omit the 12V wire entirely), as applying 12V to the wrong pin will fry your board and may damage your Amiga. DO NOT USE THIS CONNECTOR TO POWER ANY DEVICES, IT IS ONLY FOR APPLYING ADDITIONAL POWER IF REQUIRED!

If using RT with a Pi 3A, you may find some HDMI connectors hit the back of the case. To prevent this use either an HDMI cable with a small connector (e.g. SlimHDMI), a cable with a 90degree connector, or an FFC type cable. Alternatively, you can use a Pi Zero 2w which gives much more space and uses less power, but at a slight performance cost.

Known issues: Currently MapROM does not work with Linux based Mushashi so a physical ROM will be required. This should not be an issue with Emu68, and MapROM should work as expected.

If you have any feedback, ideas for improvements, or encounter any issues, please feel free to post in the #pistorm600 channel on the discord server.

Enjoy!
Thanks
