Memory expansion boards

Microbotics M-502 for Amiga 500 (512k SLOW or CHIP after mod) and Amiga 500+ (1MB CHIP)
This expansion uses the same RAM-chips as the later Amiga 500 models (rev. 6 and up) and harddrive controllers like the A2091 and A590: HM514256AP-10 (DIP-20 256kx4, 4 chips per 512k)
At the time of purchase I found these chips on utsource: HM514256AP-10

SupraRAM 500 RX as well as Trifecta 500LX and Oktagon 2008 above and Amiga 3000 uses TC514400Z-80 (ZIP-20 1Mx4, 4 chips per 2MB)
At the time of purchase I found these chips on eBay: 1PCS TC514400Z-80 ZIP-20 TOSHIBA 1,048,576 x 4 BIT DYNAMIC RAM

Golden Image RC-2000 with absolutely no identification text on the card uses 1Mx1 DIP-18 (16 needed per 2MB).
At the time of purchase I found these chips at Elgood OY / Partco in Finland: TARIC 81C1000-70

Testing the installed memory

There are some generic software based memory testers around for the Amiga. Just to name a few we have Amiga Test Kit and my own software (which runs from Workbench and an alternate version which runs from CLI: MemoryTest (Aminet: util/misc/MemoryTest.

Usually the memory expansion boards have a “test” jumper which disables autoconfig of RAM and allows that to be tested with the expansion specific tester included on the installation disk. These bootable disks are available at least for Supra 500RX, Oktagon and A590. Oktagon tests the RAM in 4MB chunks, so it will first say “4MB gefunden”, then “2MB gefunden” when it is done testing 4MB out of 6MB installed on the board.

Commodore Amiga 500 full replacement Power Supply (DIY)
Power supply used above (discontinued):
Mean Well T40-B
Suitable power supplies for modification as above:
Mean Well RT-65B (5-8A on +5V)
Less suitable, won’t fit in the original plastic case:
RT-85B (8-10A on +5V)
Less suitable (needs constant load of 0.1A on -12v line, as the T40-B used in the modification)
Mean Well RT-50B (4-5A on +5V) || RPT-60B (4-4.4A on +5V) || RPT-75B (6-8A on +5V)
