Unfortunately, that board is a piece of proprietary hardware and not for
sale. But it does show what is possible even now.
At work we've just finished off a board that is about the size of a small PC
graphics card that could probably fit a half-dozen Coco3FPGA designs in it
all at once. Also has analogue VGA and DVI (1920x1050) output. No SD/MMC
card slot but does have USB host and OTG ports.
I've ported Space Invaders, Pacman and the C64 to it - purely for testing
purposes of course!!! ;) Perhaps I should get Coco3FPGA running on it with
DVI output to a 30" monitor... I'll take a photo if I get the chance...
Again, not a commercial product. :(
