The AmigaCD32 was the world's first 32bit CD-ROM based game console, debuting in 1993.

In fact it is based on Commodore's Amiga1200 computer: being in-effect an A1200 without a keyboard, floppy drive, mouse, monitor, and having been placed in a suitable case.

Technical Specifications: Motorola 68020 at 14 MHz, 2MB ChipRAM[?], 1KB FlashROM[?], AGA Chipset[?], OS 3.1, IDE CD-ROM, expansion socket (for accelerator, hard drive, MPEG cartridge), 4 channel stereo sound, Gamepad, Serial port, 2 Gameports, Interfaces for keyboard etc

CD32 could be enhanced using these devices : ProModule[?], Paravision SX-1[?] and Paravision SX-32[?] (which includes 68030 CPU).

These devices make it possible to use a floppy disk, hard disk, IBM PC keyboard and much more with this Amiga. An Amiga32CD could be turned into a de facto Amiga1200 via the addition of 3rd party packages.

NOTE: When you make CDs which you want to have read on an Amiga CD32, make the CD as ISO 9660, level2, mode1. Don't use Rock Ridge or Joliet extensions.
