Hi Nicolas,

>> I'm for(;;) and have been distributing the FE3 for a while.

Yes, I do. Funny thing we're writing in English here as we're both German native speakers...

> - ATF1504ASVL-20JU44 (faster parts were on backorder)
Diddl had some issues at an early CPLD design with the CPLD beeing "too fast". So you might want to prefer the slower one.

> - ATMEGA1284P-PU (I went for this bigger version on purpose and bought some stock to get free shipping)
Good idea to switch to the 1284P. Not necessary at the moment, but who knows how long the SD2IEC will fit into an 644...

> - SCDA6A0101 is a lower profile version of the original SCDA5A0201. I ordered both and I will test if the smaller one fits. It might fit better with the slot in the back of the cartridge case.
Good news! Please let me know, if you could try them.

> I was especially shocked that I couldn't find any AM29F040 chips in any package at most shops. I have at least one at home and I can buy them off ebay via some Hong Kong suppliers, but that's it.

Kessler has them for a very fair price.
