We are taking a few days off. Orders can still be placed and
will be shipped, but we will not be able to process support
requests before September.
Floating Point Unit / Mathematical Coprozessor
The 68882 is a so-called Floating Point Unit (FPU), a mathematical
coprozessor for fast processing of floating point operations. Many
Amiga accelerator cards (like the
and memory expansion cards offer to add an FPU (there must be either
a PGA or PLCC socket on the card) to speed floating point operations
up. Every software that supports FPU operations for calculations
is heavily sped up, a good example for such software are raytracing
The 68882 is available in different speeds and in two different
packages (PLCC and PGA). Please choose the FPU accordingly and make
sure it matches the speed and socket of your processor/RAM card.
