Rev C4A is Shipping
Rev C4A – Official Release
All of that to say that it is taking a lot of time to process each board and to make them ready for shipping since I am only one person doing this. The throughput is minimal as I can only process between 3 to 6 per week. This in turn just consumes all my time which in turn stops me from finishing the development of the Vicky II graphic controller among other things.
Developing a new product from scratch is a lot of work and I know my early-birds have been very patient and I would like to thank them for that. Now, that the Foenix FMX is finally making its way into new homes, it will be upon the new owner to bring that new retro computer to the next level because at the end of the day, there is just so much I can do…
The C256 FMX in new homes…
THE FOENIX FMX – The C256 Foenix Dev Platform
Since the beginning, I have mentioned many times how the C256 Foenix FMX is a high-end version of the C256 Foenix but also a Development platform to help create software for the upcoming “official User Version” C256 Foenix that I hope to release before Summer. Those who are beginning to receive these development units will really be at the forefront of creating the next generation of software for the unit. As we speak, the BASIC interpreter has been instantiated in the unit, the FX/OS or the Foenix Workbench is still in the work and already we have a tracker for the unit. These 3 pieces of software have been created by the very small team of Alpha developers. I can only imagine what the next generation will come up with…
Long live the C256 Foenix!!!
