Yes.  Using John standard boards.

A zeta-board =/= a S-100 board, so I presume that you're only talking about design reuse from whatever John cooks up?

And (to John) yes, interested here as well.

Doug and I are working on a version of the ROMwbw CPM that will require an updated rom-ram board.   This will be a Zeta type system.   So I hope we can get a new one in the que.

Guys if there is enough interest I could do another version of the “EPROM” board.  Of the 20 or so boards I have done so far it’s the one I’m least satisfied with. I think we could better splice of 8 bit ROMS, and 8/16 bit RAM/EPROMS/Flash on one board with less confusing jumpers etc.  The problem is we would need about 20 boards to hit the $30 breakpoint

Doug, Tom, and Leonard;

Excited to hear about your new effort!


In your deliberations, would you please consider support for the 4MG RAM board (that recent joiners, including myself, have) in addition to the EPROM/RAM/Flash board that I have not (and falls into the unobtanium category at the moment)?



Perhaps the 4MG RAM board can be configured to work comparably so that this dual-support isn't a problem?  Online documentation states "You will notice that the board accommodates both static RAM chips, Flash RAM chips and EPROMS (from 2716's all the way up to 27256's)."

I think that explicit support for the 4MG RAM board would open up your audience a bit (more) and aid some of us newbies :->.

Thank you!
