I don't think so.  Rainer Buchty posted some initial VHDL code to,
but nothing was announced since then.

I think it would be worth trying to link this code with an SDRAM controller.
I don't know VHDL myself, but if I remember correctly, I found some VHDL
code for an SDRAM controller somewhere.  There exist 16 MB SDRAM memory chips
with 8 bits wide data bus.  You could probably get them cheaply from a
newish DIMM (if you're not afraid of desoldering SMD components, that is).
