Amiga Technical References

NOTE : the below has been mirrored from National Amiga. Its mainly here in case anything happens to their backups, they cease to provide this service, or who knows what. Since I plan to keep it online for the next 50 years, I think the info here will outlive them.. but who knows ;)

Thanks given to the Way Back Machine, some of the info mirrored here would have been lost forever without their help.

Welcome to our technical information page. Main reason this is here is because we see a lot of frequently asked questions in various newsgroups regarding simple things such as pinouts for monitors, disk drive ports etc..

Well, we have a lot of that information and we want to be able to share it with you, the dedicated Amiga user.

If there is something you do not see on this page that you want added, let us know.
If there is something you want to add to this page, send it to us and we'll put it up.
If there is something you think is wrong with some of the technical specs, please, send email to telling us what.

* National Amiga or ARCH Tech take NO responsibility what-so-ever for the damage, failure or injury that may occur from these references. In most cases they are typed right out of the manuals.

If you are going to be using the information from these pages in something of your own, we respectfully request that you credit the original author and where you found it. If it were not for them, it wouldn't be here. Everything was typed in by Greg Scott unless otherwise mentioned.
