It's called the Liber809 and is a 6809 daughterboard that replaces the 6502 CPU found in the Atari 8 bit computers such as the Atari 400/800/130XE/etc.  I've currently got a handwired prototype running on an Atari XEGS.

What a phenomenally interesting idea, especially with the possibility of NitrOS-9. We have loved the CoCo due to the power of OS-9, but the video and audio was always lacking compared to machines like the Commodore 64. Something like this would be very interesting to me, and certainly could make NitrOS-9 live on with a much larger user base.

Will you have any type of blog site (like John did with his retro challenge game) on progress?
