SysinfoBoards V3.7

Copy Sysinfo.boards to S:
Sysinfo will recognize more expansion boards.

*** Important ***
You must increase the Stacksize of SysInfo, or else it will crash with these
extended Boardinfos !I didn't notice because i got StackAttack running ->
I've included an new Icon with 16384 Bytes Stack which seems enough even
without StackAttack.
Or increase the StackSize yourself.
Or install StackAttack on your System - it's a good tool. :)

This is a list of all known expansion boards for the amiga, i've added a
lot over the time and thought it maybe useful for others, if you know some
which arent in the list, write me a mail and i will add them.

Update 3.5:
Added 50 new ID's with thanks to infos from http://amiga.resource.cx
Reworked a lot of the descriptions.

Please understand that many times the companies reused ID's, for example
Manufacturer 2017 / ID 11 =
Lists 11 expansions with this ID.
Ok, if they got the same functionality like SCSI port on all of them it
would make sense, but manufacturers used the same ID for totally
different hardware, so the description will be sum of them - in this case
SeriesII/SCSI - but they also did an IOExtender and PhonePak (an Fax-Card)
with the same Autoconfig-IDs .. :-/
I'm not really sure why this reusing happend so often, but there is nothing
i can do about it. Multiple entries with same ID wont work, Sysinfo will
just pick the first one.

Many thanks to Robert Miranda fmr. GVP Tech Support for some interessing
Knowledge about multiple ID's regarding the Manufacturer 2017 & ID 11:

"The values you see in the board ID field is all the GVP DPRC chip.
It's the same on any board with that IC. That's why a Series II HC, a
HD8/HC8, the TBC+, all Combo030 and G-Force 030/040 accelerators,
I/O Extender, and more report this. A new chip production run would have
been needed to change the board ID for each change. The chip was actually
designed with only the HC8/HD8 in mind, but a common Amiga to PC glue chip
(vs many PAL/GAL, 74-series gates, and bus buffer chips) was an incredible
cost saver back then, and ideas flowed into new products.."

I guess the same thing happend at Phase5 and others with multiple products
for the same ID.

He also proposed i dig into the GVPInfo tool, disassemble it and have a look
how the tool reads some extended information in the board config area ..
I did, but thats not useful, because it basicly contains an own version
of http://aminet.net/package/util/libs/BoardsLib - which will maybe used by
Sysinfo in the future.

It's no problem if an Manufacturer/ProductID occurs multiple times, in case
of 2017/11 you get gvpscsi.device and gvpscsi2.device and so on ..

If an Manfacturer+ID is already in the list, there is no need to write
me alternativ descriptions for it, thanks for trying. :)

Update 3.6:
It needs atleast Sysinfo V3.22, V3.24 (I know the readme says 3.23 ..) from
http://aminet.net/package/misc/fish/fish-0969 would work.
Added & corrected some entries, the next SysInfo will include this list,
so there will probably no further updates to this list.

BTW: Check out the ZZ9000 which was also added in this release,
what a incredible new Amiga expansion - Wow !
Based on a powerful Xilinx 7-series FPGA and 2 ARM Cortex-A9 cores:
RTG (P96 compatible) up to 1920x1080 at 8bit/16bit/32bit. (1920x1080@16 Bit)
Scandoubler with interlace flicker-fixer with AGA support
Dual 666MHz ARM Cortex A9 coprocessors to offload JPEG, MP3, GPU-acceleration
Gigabit Ethernet interface with SANA-II support, get your Amiga online
USB port supports USB mass storage devices. Access USB sticks from workbench.
SD Card interface (for firmware updates, not usable from AmigaOS)
For Amiga 500, 2000, 3000 and 4000 (Zorro 2 and 3 compatible)
Drivers, firmware & schematics are open sourced: https://source.mntmn.com/MNT
Includes ZZ9000CX video slot capture card with cable.
SDK with C examples for running ARM code from AmigaOS.


Update 3.7:
Seems the new Sysinfo is a bit delayed, so here is an update with some more
boards added.
