Description

The Plipbox Deluxe allows your Commodore Amiga 500 / 600 / 1200 / 1000 / 2000 / 2500 / 3000(T) / 4000(T) / CD-TV / CD-32 to connect via Ethernet to your local network and the Internet. You don’t need to unscrew your Amiga, just plug the adaptor to the parallel port.

Every Plipbox Deluxe is also available as special Amiga 1000 edition (female connector and correct pinout). If you wish the A1000 edition, please select the Amiga 1000 edition with the drop-down menu above!

Installation

device driver and a corresponding setup manual for the TCP/IP stack on the Amiga side is provided online by lallafa, the designer and inventor of the original Plipbox.

Benchmarks

The I/O speed is theoretically up to 96 kB/s which corresponds to 768 kBit/s, the speed of 12 parallel ISDN lines. Benchmarks have shown, that the maximum achievable transfer speed is CPU bound. That means, that the faster your Amiga CPU is, the faster the transfer speed will be. More detailed benchmarks can be found here.

Extensions

This edition of adaptor includes three LEDs that indicate power (red), network link (yellow) and network activity (green). A PhotoMOS relay was additionally built-in that switches the Plipbox Deluxe automatically on/off as soon as you switch your Amiga on/off.

Requirements

An Amiga system with Kickstart greater or equal to 2.0 and at least 2MB of RAM. A hard drive and a 68020+ CPU is recommended for using an Internet browser.

Power Supply

Since the Parallel port of the Amiga only provides a maximum current of approx. 10mA, an external power supply is needed. You can use a conventional regulated 5V DC USB charger (e.g. from a cell phone or an MP3 player) connecting to the Mini-USB port on the rear side of the adaptor.
