Preface

Please note that these unofficial pages are a work in progress intended only to serve as a helpful user-to-user reference and overview of the ZZ9000. They are not intended to mirror or detract from Lukas Hartmann/MNT Research GmbH's official website and support.

Many thanks to Lukas Hartmann for his hard work and dedication in developing and producing this card for Amiga 2000-, 3000-, and 4000-series, as well as the Amiga 500 and 500+ (or other custom Amiga also using a Zorro II adapter like Rob Cranley's Z-500 or the Checkmate 1500 Zorro adapter).

Thanks also to _Bnu, shanshe and Chain|Q (and anyone else I may have missed) for their code contributions—if you've contributed any ZZ9000-related code, please let me know so I can add your name.

The ZZ9000 provides much-needed modern hardware to 'big box' Amiga owners; all that's needed is software to tap into it.

The latest firmware version (pre-release) is 1.7.0 beta 2; driver version (stable) is still 1.6.2, but the new ZZTop-1.1 Beta tool can be used with it.

August 11, 2020 change log (since 1.6.2):
