RE: [N8VEM-S100:486] S-100 6502 CPU poll

Hi Andrew,

I would be interested in getting a 6502 board now if you can get enough
takers for a production run.
It looks like a nice board to play with.

Thanks to Rich and Neil for their hard work, the S-100 6502 CPU is basically
ready to go.  However as it is currently configured, it is a bus master CPU
with boot ROM only.  It does not support the Temporary Master Interface for
multiple CPU bus masters and it does not include any SRAM or IO peripherals
such as serial ports, parallel ports, or timers.

Eventually, I would like to make the S-100 6502 CPU support TMI and also
include some additional SRAM and IO.  However that is probably months away.

Would the S-100 builders be interested in a S-100 6502 CPU board V1 which
captures the current CPU and boot ROM only?  If there is enough interest, I
could do a production run of these boards and later include the SRAM, IO,
and TMI interface.

Ideas, thoughts, all welcome.

Thanks and have a nice day!

Andrew Lynch
