Nice. There are many intriguing hardware projects. I think the future looks bright for TOS.

It doesn't count because it is not in superior through hole technology. ;)

Holy crap. That’s impressive.
A kludge is a workaround or quick-and-dirty solution that is clumsy, inelegant, inefficient, difficult to extend and hard to maintain.

Yes, indded, not easy to build because of BGA, it can theoretically run 080 CPU core, really powerfull piece of hardware ;) i do like how it looks like,
will follow this with big interest, hopefully it will be open-source.... :geek:

Does it fully support 68000 (Atari ST) or just is limited to Amiga?
Lynx II / Jaguar / TT030 / Mega STe / 800 XL / 1040 STe / Falcon030 / 65 XE / 520 STm / SM124 / SC1435
SDrive / PAK68/3 / Lynx Multi Card / LDW Super 2000 / XCA12 / SkunkBoard / CosmosEx / SatanDisk / UltraSatan / USB Floppy Drive Emulator / Eiffel / SIO2PC / Crazy Dots / PAM Net

Those are not going to be cheap, that's for sure.

Impressive as it is, I'm not sure I want one.

As long as he didn't extend the core, it will not run on ST
Because:
1. No Buserror
2. No Sync Businterface
3. No Busarbitration for giving the control to DMA
4. No full integrated Reset/Halt Logic

Because the Amiga didnt need it!
