Happy Whatever happened with the CDTV Coldfusion upgrade?

http://www.cdtv.org.uk/coldfire/

Awesome, development seems to have died almost 5 years ago now, anyone know what happened with this?

Oli HD ran out of funds and enthusiasm plus it became obvious this chip was not compatible enough with the 68k for it to be a viable alternative.

Oh, and it wasn't for CDTV it was for A4000 / A3000 (or A1200 with suitable bus board) it is just by the CDTV org website owner.

Lo, Not funds, Im still making different projects (see olihd.com) and Im still messing around with the Coldfire for fun (When I get time) but yeah the project itself is dead, dont expect a card to be launched. It never got to a stage where I could test if it was compatible or not, there were only a couple of instructions that could have caused problems.

The coldfires still in development and is still an interesting chip. The V4 core is now available for building into FPGA's and the V1 core is free to use with Altera FPGA's, real interesting stuff as there are more signals available for interfacing and even the V1 core has a hardware trap for emulating missing instructions.

Anyhoo I work 40 hours a week as an electronics engineer fixing PLC's so dont get a great deal of time free to work on the Amiga in general.

The last prototype built was a completely CPLD buffered design but I never did the code for it.
