The recently founded company Creative Development will presumably show a new USB card for classic Amiga computers at the AMIGA + RETRO COMPUTING show at the booth of Vesalia. "Ultrabus" has got four USB ports, and can be used in Zorro Amigas as well as on the clockport of an Amiga 1200. In Zorro mode, a flash memory with 512k capacity can hold the complete USB stack, so USB devices are available right after a cold boot. This enables booting from USB storage devices.
