Holy sh*t! Well done! Hahaha

EDIT: This will probably be asked - is it the same BOM as the 330?

The BOM isnt identical because the number of parts is different but the components used are the same ones.

There are 6 Bus buffers for example rather than 4 on the TF330 etc. This is to accomadate the INT2 feature.

EDIT: Actually I dont know yet if the CPLD will be the XC95144 or the XC95288... will see how i go when i get to the firmware stage.

Looks good to me.

Will support by buying a couple of boards when they are available.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

I'll be going down the usual route of testing myself, extending the test to the beta testers and then making it more widely available.

This card has been on my todo list for a few months and it was the reason i wasnt that keen to release the TF534 (and why i got so cross with people asking if they can upgrade the TF534.. you cant).... This card should work way better than any previous TF5xx card and have more RAM. I've dropped the FPU because its more hassle than its worth.

Yeah agreed re the FPU. I haven't bothered adding mine to the 530 because I don't want to rock the boat too much on an already stable card.

Im keen to get involved at whatever stage you're comfortable with. This new card will be well worth the wait!

It does look like it will be much easier to assemble than the TF534, which is another bonus.

Will look into the costs when the BOM is ready.

BTW, whatever happened with that Atati and A1000 rom board?
