http://turbo-cf.narod.ru/eng/index.html Is this proyect still alive?

What about ColdFusion accelerator for AMIGA 3 and 4000, any news?

Replace "compatible with" with "ALMOST compatible with" ...

This would have been great couple of years ago, but I'm afraid it's a bit too late now when there is Pegasos and AmigaOne.

I do not doubt it that this still could be great expansion for the Classic Amiga, but who is going to write drivers for all those features ? And I think that release of OS4 for the AmigaOne will mean more or less the end for the era of Classic Amiga.

Has no future, but it's a nice hobby project...

Also my thoughts. For a start it would be better to just make an Accelerator for the A1200 slot of A4000 slot. Less complex and PCI - USB, IDE etc. - could be added to a slot.

As one of the developers (there is 3 of them) I can add what project is still alive , but as all these hobby projects is suffering from lack of free time and moving slowly. Meantime we're on the move , layout is almost done (80%). There's one bad thing - we don't have any A1200 trapdoor slot connectors.
P.S. Maybe someone would like to have an interview from us ? ;)

I do hope your team has someone with decent experience on layout design.. Usually when hobby hw-projects start there ain't prior experience and people spend lot time and money on basic errors.

I have a broken Blizzard 1260 that a nice person send me for free (gracias Vago:) and I could send you for free of course, and use the trapdoor slot connector for your coldfire prototype.

I hope shipping cost to Russia is not very expensive. Im from Spain :)

Send me a email if you are interested.

you are right, it needs emulate a few missing instructions

In reply to Comment 8 (TRAPOSOFT):
As a developer:
It's need to TRAP some unimplemented instructions, like MULx <ea>,Dh:Dl... But I know how to do this :)

It's seems to be the time to write FAQ, but:
I developed only low speed embedded microprocessor systems prior to this project, so this is like an training... This is likely to be most cheap accelerator for an Amiga (about 100$ per board estimate). The most importrant thing, we will get is expirience. :) Our further plans are to develop PPC accelerators and motherboards. There's many Amiga users with 030 and without accelerator (at least in Russia), so it may be useful thing :)

Hehe.. There's no doubt. :) But in russia not everyone can get even Pegasos G3 :( Our project was started in means of that realities...

Planned PPC board will possibly be simply have one G3 without anything else (only RTC and bus expansion onboard as small features)
