I think the Pak 68/3 board and the SST are pretty comparable. Both offer 68030 acceleration, fast RAM, FPU support, etc.

The Pak is a bit smaller, footprint wise, and does offer up to 64 megs of fast RAM support, IIRC. To be fair, it requires
a second daughter board to do this.

The Pak also has a fall back compatibility mode. I don't know if the SST has a mode like that or not? Maybe Darren can tell
us.

When I was subscribed to Current Notes (a US Atari magazine), Dave Small was one of the regular writers and I avidly looked
forward each month to anything he wrote. Great guy, the Atari community was lucky to have him with us. :)

Hello,

He found why the prototypes were not working : bad CPLD !
Now this is running.

Now he just has to launch the production of the batch !

I would apologise for the extreme long time without any update. Hard days ... and i will not bother you about that.

So. Good news (as mentioned few post above). I got the proto CT60e to work. The problem was bit more complicated. A compilation of bath of broken CPLD's, errors in soldering mask on PCB and all possible small crap.

But.

It is ALIVE. Finally.

I am so glad, that i could not resist to make small video about that. Luckily i got some footage from my work.

Just Enjoy it: https://youtu.be/Dd3p-RP6Ad8

I will post next news as soon as i get test reports.

Best Regards
Willy.
