CDTV Burn-In #2 test CD-ROM
Over the years Commodore produced a number of items for internal use only. Over the years former employees or dumpster divers have managed to get their hands on such items, including the Commodore CDTV Burn-In #2 test CD-ROM (Orange Label), of which only 2,000 copies were produced. The CD-ROM was used for production testing in Japan, continuously cycle the machines through a predetermined set of tests while the machines were "burned in" after assembly.

In the Overlay Mode, Palette color Zero becomes transparent. Create your own graphics and put them over 'LIVE' video.

Amiga 286 bridgeboard cards
A set of three Amiga 2000 bridgeboard cards (A2286). The first (top) is a Rev 2 board, built in Germany, with what looks to be 256K of memory on-board. The second and third cards are both US-made Rev 3 boards, each with 512K of memory. None of them have the math chip installed. These photographs are taken from Dave Haynie's private collection.

Amiga 2410 graphics card
An Amiga 2410 graphics card, also called the University of Lowell card, since it was designed by Rich Miner's group at the University of Lowell. This is a graphics card for the Zorro II expansion bus, based on the Texas Instruments 34010 graphics processor.

Haynie's Junque - Collection 1
On the top left, we have an Amiga 3000 analyzer card. This has a 68030 on it, a clock circuit, and a bunch of strip-post headers. The main use of this board was to allow a logic analyzer to attach to the Amiga 3000's local bus, as an aid to both hardware and software debugging.

Next is the Amiga 2300 Genlock. This is the one that sits inside the machine, in the video slot of an Amiga 2000, 3000, or 4000. There's some debate if any of them really worked; I preferred the SuperGen when I did that sort of thing.

The lower board is the Commodore/Amiga scan converter, similar to Pete Silverstone's "flickerFixer". This one is based on the same Amber chip used in the Amiga 3000. It would be used in the Amiga 2000's video slot (same place the Genlock goes). I don't know if these ever worked on the Amiga 4000; they certainly wouldn't translate the A4000's 24-bit color, it's strictly a 12-bit device.

Amiga CD32 Demo Disk
Toward the end of their lifespan, Commodore realised that the image of an Amiga boot screen in most shop windows was a major detractor from their products. To avoid this they bundled a demonstration disc (v2.0) for display purposes. This was only used by the small independent computer shops, larger stores ignored the disc altogether.

It became available just before Commodore went into liquidation and will form the basis of the proposed AmigaOS 3.5 software upgrade. For around £35 the Kickstart upgrade is available with ARexx and AmigaDOS manuals, Kickstart 3.1 chip/s designed specifically for your machine and five Workbench 3.1 disks.

Amiga Developers CD
One of the many frustrations of Amiga programmers was the relative difficulty of getting development documents on the Amiga. Amiga Technologies attempted to rectify this by releasing the official Amiga developers CD. The latest 1.2 edition includes documentation on CATS and IFF standards, as well as a number of third party APIs and the sought after hardware, devices, and libraries manuals in AmigaGuide.

Chelsea Sponsorship: 1993 - 1995
In 1987, Commodore UK negotiated a £1.25 million sponsership deal with Chelsea Football club.

The team strip was made by Umbro, it has the Umbro label in the collar and also on the right chest(velveteen). On the left chest is the club crest (sewn) and a large sponsors logo C= AMIGA (velveteen) is across the midriff.

Amiga Boing Ball logo plate
Before the rainbow check mark was chosen as the official logo for the Commodore Amiga, Commodore produced a batch of Boing Ball logo plates that would be attached to the front of the A1000 computer, 1080 Monitors, 1010 Disk Drives, 5.25" disk drives, and A1000 Keyboards. However, the company abandoned this logo, chosing the familiar rainbow check mark. The Boing ball was quickly adopted as the unofficial logo for Amiga enthusiasts everywhere.

The plate is made of metal with a plastic lamination layer, and is covered with a die-cut piece of waxed paper, as originally manufactured by Commodore in 1985.. The silvery metal squares which checkerboard on the ball with the red squares were made with a diamond-cut process, so they reflect and shimmer when you move the logoplate around in the light.
