C-one

Hi:
I was taking a look at Individual Computers and I saw this:
"C-One
re-configurable computer

With the C-One, we've built a computer system that is completely based on programmable logic chips, so-called FPGAs. The board is meant for FPGA developers and C64 enthusiasts, but also for collectors who want to own a milestone of computer history:

To our knowledge, the C-One is the world's first re-configurable computer.

The C-One is not limited to 8-bit systems. The Minimig core turns it into an Amiga clone with market's best hardware instrumentation available for a Minimig. Find out more on the C-One webseite.
"

Perhaps I shoudn't open this thread as I have no idea how to programate a logic chip and so..., but I want to know more about it, if it can be used inside a C64 or if it's thought for it, as they say something about C64 enthusiasts.

I've asked moderators and there's no thread opened about it.

It's for sale (333), and I would like to know what people can do/has done with it.
Thanks

It was made many, many years ago (2003) and is obsolete in todays terms (too expensive, too small and too slow to store complex designs). It cannot load even the most simple 16-bit design without an additional FPGA.

The "successor" to the C-One could be thought of as the FPGA-Arcade Relay board

It's so small... can it be used as a minimig or at what level of hardware emulation do they get?

If you search the threads for a "Minimig 2" one you will find useful info as long as YouTube videos about it working.
Not only can be used as a Minimig (after all the softcore is a revamped Minimig's - Afaik Dennis is in the team as well) but one can load a softcore of Spectrum, Arcade etc...
It's a nice project full of potential. The extra future daughterboard with 060, USB headers, Ethernet, 128MB SDRAM is also promising and full of win.

It is bigger than the MiniMig v1.1 PCB by about 2x times.

More than the original MiniMig v1.1 PCB which is 68000, OCS only. They stand the chance of being able to reproduce A1200 hardware with 020. Upto an 060 with external CPU.

So can the original MiniMig v1.1 PCB and the C-One etc. There are C64, Spectrum and Amstrad cores ported to all three.
