I have one to add to the list.
It was an actual product made by Synertek.
I /may/ have the only one that was sold. I have no hints that others were
I bothered SYNERTEK to get it done and received S/N 0000001. :D
It was a 6809 CPU replacement for the 6502 CPU in the SYNERTEK SYM-1.
It required a satellite board to provide the correct 6809 Clocks and try to
make the single stepping possible.
The SYM-1 6502 monitor program was rewritten for the 6808 CPU.
I had FLEX running on it but it was the CoCo2 that allowed me to do anything
