Nope, CF Cards are fast enough, CF can reach close to 10mb/s what a ST never will be reached... question is, what does the Interface can reach ?
I know what the Lightning ST reach what is already working.

Speed of interface is not relevant, its down to CPU & CF card speeds.

Lots of pins to solder
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Exxos, any chance you'd sell it as parts. Ever since I've got the microscope and started to examine existing boards I'd really like to avoid anything made with lead free solder. Just a thought.. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

This is just a prototype, it's not a production board. We are a long way off that yet. We will need to do another couple of revisions as well. We have not even finished finalising the firmware , or even tested various cards, this is pretty much only the start of the project.

Realize that Exxos, it may never see the light of day either but if it does it would nice if you could offer a few as parts. Its a little late to say something if they all get put together.

Not to change the subject but do you still have any plans for the rev H Exxos atari board which you ask for interested parties in dec/jan. It was a respin of the current board with fixes, connector alignment, and some minor upgrades before you moved on to the new major upgrade board.. just querious. :) :) :)
