Somewhat related Andrew, the companion VDP video board prototype is complete. See:-
Leon and Neil, just got copies, pending their review, I think the only changes for a “commercial run” would be changes to the onboard speaker connections/locations and more info on the boards silkscreen.

At one point late last year Andrew L. and Neil B. were working on a new "S-100 Utility" card which was basically most of the hardware from an MSX computer on one card.
This card would also be very useful to new S-100 builders because it has RAM/ROM/UART/parallel all on one board.
What is the status of this board design? I remember there was one email thread about the ROM loading being somehow problematic, but that was a long time ago.
I'd like to do the board run on this one when it's done (assuming no one else has spoken for it), and I think we should try and wrap it up as it will be very useful in the future.
