Rich Dreher’s CFFA3000 prototype has made its public debut (at least an assembled version has). It doesn’t work yet; Rich says there is still much work to be done with the card’s logic before it’s ready… but if all goes as planned, the new card is projected to be completed by mid-2010.

Rich Dreher's CFFA3000 Prototype; with 4 LEDs, you KNOW it's serious.

In addition to the usual CFFA features we’ve grown accustomed to, the CFFA3000 is expected to include nibble-level floppy disk emulation, USB flash drive support (for holding .dsk images only) and possibly full DMA support β€” all of which makes it a worthy successor to the popular “classic” CFFA card.
