I'm happy and have current time to do a PCB layout, and I suppose such a design might match demand. My main concern with a 6532-based approach is the long term viability of sourcing 6532 ICs. > To have the FlashROM programmed in-place this would required a bit > more glue-logic and pretty much programming efforts to have a reliable > flashing tool that's able to recognise all the different Flash types. I agree, in place programming would be more trouble than value. I'm game to design and run a small run of boards, just let me know.
