The project is being developed all the time. I'm working on drivers for subsequent devices working with the SPI bus.
The Wicher 500i turbo card itself can be ordered in most AMI-stores

@spidi

Will you consider selling an SPI zorro II card?

After watching your recent development on the SD card interface, the VSxx sound decoder and now this enviroment sensor, it sounds appealing for big box owners to have such an interface. You could even reuse your code and probably offer it at a very decent price range.

BTW, you are missing ethernet/wifi on that SPI port

I will add that there is also an I2C controller on this ZorroII card

Currently working on a ethernet controller on the ENC28J60 chip.

Great to see such rapid progress with this! Been waiting for new developments on the ACA500+ for months now and no news - while I love the card, this is becoming the more attractive option with the added functionalities actually materialising. Of course in the end, it's great to have both available

The SD card adapter should be connected according to the descriptions from this page https://retro.7-bit.pl/?lang=en&go=p...her500i#tabs-3
Then install software giggledisk and fat95 from now on entering command giggledisk sdcard.device mountdos prefix sd in CLI can enjoy support of SD cards formatted on the FAT file system.

@ spidi: which trapdoor extension do you use?
My memory card without Wicher is chip ram, with Wicher it's fast ram. But I want 1mb chip ram.

I see that these are now out of production. I'm trying to find somewhere that has them in stock for my recently acquired A500.
