A-EON Technology and ACube Systems strengthen strategic alliance
Cardiff, 21st May 2015

Following a series of meetings held over three days in late April at A-EON Technology’s Cardiff headquarters, the two companies agreed a joint development plan to ensure the future of Classic and Next-Generation Amiga hardware and software development. In particular they agreed a new hardware and software development roadmap which both companies will jointly fund and support. Their plans include a series of exciting new hardware and software projects starting with the Minimig Plus, an updated version of ACube System’s highly successful Amiga 500 FPGA implementation, based on Dennis van Weeren original design concept.

During the summit the companies also visited Ultra Varisys, the developers behind A-EON Technology’s Nemo and Cyrus 64-bit PowerPC motherboards, to discuss future hardware trends and opportunities. Max Tretene, ACube’s technical guru commented, “During our meetings we had very good MiniMig Plus prototype ideas about near future hardware and software development, really can’t wait to realize all of them.” While Enrico Vidale, ACube’s business manager added, “This strategic alliance can only be good for the whole Amiga community.”

Meanwhile A-EON Technology’s Managing Director, Matthew Leaman commented, “The combined technical and financial resources of A-EON & ACube should help secure future success.” Trevor Dickinson added, “I’m more optimistic now about the future Amiga scene than I have been for a very long time. All I can say is, bring it on!”
