But, I'm now less concerned about demand for such an adapter, so I'll commit to running a 100 of them, provided someone will commit to handling the Verilog/VHDL for the CPLD. (If it can be done in a GAL or two, so much the better, as it's hard to find 5V CPLDs at reasonable prices. I'm happy to design the board (CPLD/GAL, FLASH, HEADER), and program it with the variations (I can also design a board with a JEDEC style EPROM socket so folks can drop in their own ROM files). But, I just don't have enough expertise with HDL yet to commit to that portion. Jim Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2011-08-10 04:00:12
