OS RAM module (for model A/B)

Post by cmorley » Mon Jul 17, 2017 7:08 pm

Hi All,

The OS RAM modules inspired by the C64 and Tricky are designed and working now for the Model B and now available. There are two of the first batch of 10 I made left but I can make more if there is any demand.

Simply put they add up to 30KB of extra user RAM, accessible from your own programs including BASIC, to a Model B.

Definitely worth a look if you dabble writing you own code BASIC or 6502 code. If you don't program, in all honesty then they are not much use (unless modified versions of the OS,common of filesystems or tools ROMs etc are released to take advantage)! As it stands they are a useful novelty really. I've found them useful for my own software.

The forum thread is: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=13147
My website write/docs at: http://www.boobip.com/hardware/osram

If you're interested get in touch. £18 a module and £2 UK P&P (shipping combined if you want other things too).
