| Accelerator board project 'Buffee': ARM processor emulates 68040/400 Mhz|
The open source accelerator board project "Buffee" started by Renee Cousins and Tim Wacker consists of an adapter board which is connected to the processor socket of an A500, A1000 or A2000 and has a SoC of type Octavo OSD335x-SM inclusive 512 or 1024 MB RAM.
The ARM-CPU of the Octavo module emulates a 68k processor using a special JIT emulator called Pseudo JIT which supposedly can achieve the speed of a 68040 clocked with 400 Mhz. Additional to the firmware, the hardware design freely available. According to the developers in their blog, the production of prototypes gets closer. (cg) (Translation: dr)
