Q on adding math coprocessor to Daystar 030 accelerators

Recommended Posts

This is my collection of Daystar 030 accelerators:

2018-01-22_22_45_28.jpg

 

All share CPU part number MC68030RC50B. Only one has the coprocessor PN MC68882RC50A.  I'd like to add the missing chip to both that don't have it.  These seem readily available on Ebay... 

 

Do I just need to acquire 2 of these MC68882RC50A and install with pin1 in the proper orientation?

 

THx!

Have a look through Amiga forums, you probably don’t need a matched 50mhz 68882, much slower FPUs clock upwards with little difficulty. Might save a few $$, at least.
