It would be alot easier to use the existing expansion port.
I would think it would cost to do something thats already there.

The point was:

1. Make something that does exactly what the SX32 did. (Memory, IDE interface (or just a CF/SD card holder) - and replicating other ports like external drive and analouge RGB out isn't a bad idea either.

2. Make something that either does everything 1) does, but also leaves room for a higher end accelerator on top like the aca500 does.

3. or Make something that either does everything 1) does - but with a 030 processor.

Any one of them is greatly appriciated. The SX addons cost easily 200++ GBP on evilbay now, so there are room for a modern expansion at less than that price (like the other acas cost).

It seems the problem is the edge connector and before that problem is solved no CD32 add-on can be considered.

Well, I'd be happy with some more ram and an ide/sata addon. pity no one knows where to source those edge connectors. Commodore has'nt made it easy to upgrade the CD32 ;-)

Is it something that could be built by a hardware hobbyist? Because I'm not one, but they do exist.

Jens can make the expansion connectors with his tooling, if someone was serious about making a new board they could contact him about having a batch made.

Well I'm not technical at all but I'm interested in some kind of expansion. Surely there's enough interested CD32 users to make it worthwhile.

Its the tooling costs, hence you would need alot of pre-orders.

Someone set us up a pre-order form so we can get the ball rolling.

How about an expansion through the aux port. surely that would be cheaper. would a floppy drive or flash card be possible? maybe with a pass through for the keyboard.

#38 Count me in for any CD32 upgrades. A quick way to add more ram and a CF card hard disk would be great.

@Fol, missed you at Amiwest this year. We had two CDTV-CR's in the house and one of the team members from that project was there as well.
