    Project Hermes CD32 Expansion

    Found this and searched here and could not find it so here we are..


    Project Hermes is the codename for an expansion card for the venerable, Amiga CD32 games console,

    The aim is for this blog to be used to track developments and get feedback from fellow users. This wordpress site will also be used to try out the format and will detail non-amiga projects too. My main website, http://www.ianstedman.co.uk, is still active.

    The design aim is to produce a couple of prototype expansion boards that allow the CD32 to function as a a fully fledged computer, akin to the Paravision SX-1 or DCE SX32/Pro expansions from the 1990ís. The idea is to provide an affordable, modern alternative to these units. The author owns a DCE SX-32 Pro unit, which with hard drive cost £600 back in 1997! A new expansion board will cost considerably less than this.

    Specification

    8 MB SRAM
    Parallel ATA (IDE) port + Compact flash connector.
    Floppy port, capable of accepting Amiga or PC floppy drives and floppy emulators.
    Real time clock?
    Clockport connector to allow for I/O expansions.
    Enable/disable logic + switch, for those old games.

    Expected cost, around £120.

    That is interesting. If it reaches production this could see a renewed popularity in the little Amiga.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Yeah it might make the costs more acceptable to mate.
