Dave there is a crying need to get some kind of general DRAM circuit that can get us GB or DRAM for these 32 bit CPUs. It’s way past my pay scale! Any help you or others can give would be great.

Yes I will be posting a lot of stuff in a couple of weeks (source code, pictures, etc).
Yes I have not forgotten the other project and am using this as a stepping stone for monitor and other code. I have been thinking about it a lot and have come to the conclusion we may be better off with just a 68040 SBC then trying to marry the 68360 to one. The 68360 introduces a lot of complexity that is not really necessary. I think we are going to have to accept some type of small board with SMT memory on it to get to where we want to go. I think we are seeing the same thing happen on the 80386 board as well. I am looking at ways to make a small FPGA into a memory controller and still have room for some more functions in it like timers which we will need for linux or other unices.
I am also going to look at the amount of work required to put uclinux on the s100 68K. It will be a swapping version but a lot of code should be reusable going forward so it is not a wasted effort.
We should probably chat sometime on the direction we want to go on this project and come up with a plan.
PS I am glad we finally got here too - this is the architecture I like the most (not an Intel fan).
Yay! Woo Hoo! Great news! We have S-100 68K CPU running!
Once this project is working maybe we could take another look at the 68360 P1 and/or 68040 SBC?
This is really great news! Please post pictures and notes on the wiki! Let’s get the word out!
PS, this project has been in work for 2 years+ so I am very happy to see it working.
