Hallo Ruud,

> > Rossmöller 8MHz Z80 accellerator module for the C128,

some news about this: Of course it's GAL chip is read protected, so it can't
be cloned the easy way.

I also made my first own GAL for the PETRAM expansion. Everything works nicely
so far, now my 2001 has 32kB of RAM and 64kB of ROM :-) I put some pictures
onto my projects page.

Hmm. I think the C128 already latches the data from the Z80 anyway, and the
waitstate idea is exactly what is used on the Rossmöller board. I saw that it
connects to the waitstate input on the Z80. I really must draw a schematic of
the little board.
