This is an add-in board that goes under the GTIA in all Atari computers, including the 1088XEL or XLD.  It consists of two boards: one board is inserted into the GTIA socket and the GTIA chip is inserted into the Sophia main board; the second board holds the DVI connector and is attached to the first by a ribbon cable (included).

NOTE 1:  If your 8-bit is NOT socketed, you will have to de-solder the GTIA and install a 40 pin socket.

NOTE 2: If you are installing this in a regular Atari (400/800/XL/XE) OR a 1088XLD, you will either have to modify your case and/or let the connector hang out the back.

NOTE 3: If you are installing this in a 1088XEL, you will need a DVI compatible backplane (available for sale here or design your own).

 NOTA BENE: Some users of the FujiNet AND Sophia have been reporting that the Sophia generates RF interference which will cause problems with the FujiNEt's WiFi reception.  Some fixes are to cover the Sophia board with RF shielding and/or move the FujiNet away from the Sophia connector.  The Brewing Academy has operated a FujiNet in an 800XL with a Sophia rev. C and, now, a Sophia 2 for many weeks/months now and have not noticed this problem.  This is NOT to say the problem does not exist.  It is saying "your mileage may vary."
