Operating Systems


The Minimig, the first hardware emulator of an Amiga 500 system based on Dennis van Weeren's open source project and produced by ACube Systems in Italy.

The original Amiga chipset (OCS and ECS) is re-implemented in FPGA.

Furthermore, thanks to the onboard 68000 cpu, the same used on the original machine. the emulation of the original hardware is accurate and it is possible to run a wide number of games and applications simply copying the ADF files (they are images of the original floppy disks) on a standard SD card.

Standard PS2 keyboard and mouse (commonly used on PCs) are supported as well as original Amiga mouse and joystick.

This project is based on Dennis van Weeren project (version 1.1)

The Minimig is available in the following configurations:

  • Fully assembled board with 2 MB RAM and 1 GB SD Card
  • Fully assembled board with 4 MB RAM and 1 GB SD Card
  • Universal PSU (110 or 220V)


  • Board with no PIC chip (for use with an ARM controler) with 2 MB RAM and 1 GB SD Card
  • Board with no PIC chip (for use with an ARM controler) with 4 MB RAM and 1 GB SD Card
  • Crystal case for the Minimig
