In both texts, the term ''VHDL code'' is mentioned. This is not precise. To get the FPGA working, VHDL sourcecode must be compiled and synthesisized to get a bitstream file for FPGA configuration. This bitstream is then loaded into the FPGA. It can be loaded via the cable or form EEPROM. Maybe there will we a switch to select wheter the configuration is taken form the EEPROM or loaded by cable without altering the EEPROM, or if the EEPROM should be reprogrammed by the bitstream loaded via the cable.

About SD, the delivery could just contain a CD with software to format with MSXDOS system an SD card.
By the way is it MSXDOS1 or MSXDOS2 since there is 256k mapper memory.
I doubt FAT16 patch exists for msxdos1...
About VHDL, I believe one goal of the 1CM is to encourage people who wants to develop on this system.
I dont think the goal is to protect VHDL for commercial purpose in the short term.

*sigh*... more depressing news please?

More bad news indeed :

http://ken.akari-house.net/1chipMSX.html

Translation of text on 3 August :

Single-chip MSX sale discontinuance is certain

...

If the numbers of the sale decision reservation are lowered up to 3090, it is likely to be able to put it on the market.

...

The number of reservation 2614 (:+28 compared with the day before)

...

Taking a pessimistic view value 2742 (:+21 compared with the day before)
Standard value 3096 (:-114 compared with the day before)
Optimism value 3737 (:-1328 compared with the day before)
Super-optimism value 4860 (:-2684 compared with the day before)

- When the super-optimism value becomes less than 5000, it becomes sale certain discontinuance.

I doubt they won't sell the OCM if they reach 4860 sold units...

Even with the announcement of the MSX2 upgrade kit, the general tendency of the sales (low ...low ...) does not have changed.

It means that only about 3100 pre-orders will exist on 20 August.

So, Ascii must now choose between the following options :

- low the required pre-orders to about 3100
- reconsider all his offer to propose later a better package to the MSX community
- let another company make an alternative offer

the counter on ASCII's page doesn't include orders via Bazix I guess.

option 4: Nishi buys the remaining OCM's Wink

I took a look at the ESE MSX project and they put the Z80 externally.
So a real Z80 is on the board and the FPGA emulates the rest , it is not a bad idea
since a Z80 quite cheap , this can free almost one third of the fpga contents
