FPGA Expansion: GRETA for Amiga 500
GRETA is supposed to expand an Amiga 500 by 8 MB SDRAM, an ethernet controller as well as a port for MicroSD cards and a freely usable I/O-port. It seems that the development of the board has been finished but since 2013 obviously the programming of the FPGA was not continued: Currently GRETA only offers additional memory. All other features still have to be programmed. The documentation of the projects are available on Github under the GNU General Public License. (cg) (Translation: dr)
