Quote from: Gryzor on 20:12, 10 November 19Sounds interesting, hope someone provides a complete assembly!What uses do you envision for it? Reminds me of the CosmosEX for the Atari ST, which was nightly interesting and useful!
Quote from: shifters74 on 17:33, 11 November 19Forgot to ask; will an M4 from Duke coexist with the board in an MX4 expansion?
Quote1) use pi as page memory i.e. can page 8 or 16K chunks in and out of CPC address space (C64 has something similar)
Quote2) use pi HDMI screen as driven output i.e. commands in basic/asm to output to the pi screen rather than cpc's for hires graphics etc3) interface to online servces via pi and wifi but use cpc keyboard and screen e.g. irc/telnet bbs etc4) would like to see a fast 6502 and z80 on the pi so that you can send code to pi to execute under the emulator of that processor (like a bbc with a second processor with file, keyboard and screen access still to cpc).
QuoteDoes a Pi3A fit ok on the back or does it need a ribbon cable instead? Currently they are 17.89 on ebay!
Quote from: shifters74 on 19:06, 11 November 19Do you have any source for the ribbon cables?
Quote from: GUNHED on 19:01, 11 November 19Very nice project...Can we connect a eZ80?Can the card issue interrupts? Can it send NMI requests?In which way can the card access the CPC?
Quote from: GUNHED on 20:39, 11 November 19Ok, thanks a lot for your answer. That could be a great thing more a kind of "math co processor" for example. But lot's of other things are thinkable. Has the card some "connection" to the outer world? Probably that's not needed, but I'm curious.
Quote from: shifters74 on 22:11, 11 November 19Pimoroni also sell the stacking headers - you can use them with a Pi4 to stack the cooling fan with other hats for example.

Quote from: 1024MAK on 12:16, 20 November 19@revaldinho - Looking good . I shall have to visit your GitHub page.@shifters74 - Nice to see someone developing code for this new card already Mark
Quote from: revaldinho on 13:28, 20 November 19BTW @1024MAK - I will be at the ABUG meet this weekend and I see your name down too. I'll be bringing a '464 with my RAM board to show it running FutureOS and maybe other '6128 only' things. I'll bring the FIFO card and some RaspberryPis too, so drop by and say hello.
