Oh i see..
These RAMs are (almost) same TSOPII 54pins, with the difference that Alliance are cheaper.
will test Alliance and Winbond RAM - already have these chips here, also Xilinx CPLD's!

Feel free to try. But 10 quid for 64Mb on a CD32 seems like a bargin to me.

Sure, hope to help with some betatests as soon as i get my hands on pcb's :P

As about offered price - of course it will be higher than TF328 because of CPU socket, CPU itself, cpld price and other additional components, yet it will be very attractive compared to SX32..

I've been looking at PCB vendors to get this made. Holy bananas. 5 PCBs for this will be almost $180 delivered. Thats what happens when you go 4 layer and past 10cm x 10cm...

I'll order via jlcpcb. I need to sit and work out their gerber rules. Annoyingly they dont provide a cam file that produces all the layers.. alot of manual work.

10 pcs will be arriving in 10-14 days. I'll pass the excess onto alenppc, supaduper & 8 bit dreams for beta testing. :)

Expect to demo it if it works at the scottish amiga users meetup on the 9th Dec.

So once we go through the pain of getting the SDRAM working i'll do a TF53x update with SDRAM.

I'll also get Edu Arana to do an A1200 version if hes willing.

Then we're setup to do an 060 board.
