German company Individual Computers will launch a new trapdoor memory expansion for the Commodore Amiga 500. The A512 memory expansion will run properly with all Agnus types, including OCS chips. Thanks to an additional refresh circuit, the single 4MBit memory chip will get enough refresh addresses to keep it’s contents in any configuration. When operated in an A500+ computer, the A512 will be used as Chip ram, and two of these expansions can be cascaded to reach the maximum configuration of 2MBytes graphics memory (1 MByte on the main board, and 1 MByte in the trapdoor slot). The pass-through port is compatible with any other 512k trapdoor expansion, as long as it fits mechanically. The price would be € 25
