With a 68EC000-10 processor and, 2 MB of FastMem, two Compact Flash slots, and Clockport, the ACA 500 is a cheap accelerator for the the Amiga 500, but with specifications and possibilities never seen before.

ACA 500 offers fast performance, hard disk storage, extra memory, expasion connector for A1200 accelerators, Clockport conector (such the Real Time Module or Catweasel). The Kickstart ROM 3.1 & 1.3, the CF driver, and PC/FAT32 software are included in flash ROM.

You will be able to boot, with Kickstart 1.3, that allows you to run old software and games that are not compatible with newer Kickstart versions, and with Kickstart 3.1, the best option for hard disk software. 

The two Compact Flash slots allows to insert one CF card in Amiga format, and a second CF card in PC/FAT32 to transfer files between PC/Mac/ and your A500. 

Easy installation, because you don't need to open the Amiga 500. It is attached in the external expansion conector of your A500. 

You have not to send to the trash your existing trapdoor RAM or CHIP expansion. ACA 500 will be compatible with they!

This includes a new revolutionary method that can turn your 512k trapdoor memory expansion into chipram! If your Amiga is equipped with an ECS Agnus chip and said internal 512k memory expansion, you can turn your computer into a 1MByte-Chipram computer, just by selecting a menu item in the configuration menu of the ACA500! A lot of stock A500 computers with board revision 6 or higher have this exact configuration

If you need more power, you will be able to expand the ACA 500 adding an A1200 accelerator like the ACA 1220, 1232 or 1231, with 020/030 processors, and 64/128MB of RAM.

Also, you can add a realtime clock, using the Clock Port conector of the ACA 500.

Note: The ACA500 is currently not compatible with the rare Amiga 500 mainboard Revision 3, and not with NTSC-A500 Rev.5. European Rev.5 boards and all higher revisions work fine.
