    Without useful bug-free matured free projects this board is just an overpriced non-standard FPGA evaluation kit...

    Yes, but it is Hosted on your Apple ][ or Commodore 64.

    The "first" Carte Blanche II units have shipped...

    For members of the FaceBook Group, "Apple II Enthusiasts", see Andrew Roughan's post :

    In the last 48 Hours, Steven Howell posted in comp.sys.apple2 that he is getting ready to make another run of the Carte Blanche II.

    This will be for the Card Only, no Extras... He is ESTIMATING a price of US$195.00, which would not include shipping...

    If you missed getting one from before, now is your chance..

    Unfortunately, Apple II FPGA designers have a tendency to keep the design closed, especially accelerator projects.

    For Run #01, one of the options was to use the supplied WDC65815, but it was limited to 1MHz. Essentially the Carte Blanche II is setup as a Alternate Processor Card, with the WDC65816, ( Instead of a Z80 or the MC6809 ).


    This is the Schematic for the Carte Blanche II.

    This is found on the Carte Blanche II Developer Resources page.

    This is the WDC65816 Accelerator Card ( Project #41 ) in Altium Designer 10 (27009).

    This is found on the Carte Blanche II Demo Project, Page - 6.

    Because of the Zip Chip, the Rocket Chip and the Applied Engineering Trans Warp Cards, as well as the Modern Boards, making an Accelerator is totally feasible..
