||7-bit: CD32 extension with RAM, IDE and clockport available soon|
A year ago 7-bit (e.g. Wicher 500i) presented a working prototype of a CD32 extension. Meanwhile the "WicherCD32" as the project was called has almost completed. WicherCD32 offers a slot for a SIMM72-RAM module, a Gayle-based IDE-controller as well as a clovkport.
Equipped with a 16 MB RAM module (modules with 50 and 60 ns were tested), the CD32 then has 11.5 MB Fast-RAM - due to the memory map of the CD32 in combination with the 68EC020 processor this is the maximum value. But the Kickstart-ROM can be copied to the Fast-RAM using the MAPROM feature. An Ethernet port can be added on the clockport using 7-bit's SPI MasterBus CP.
The actual price for the WicherCD32 as well as a precise date for the availibilty the producer has not announced yet. (cg) (Translation: dr)
