While she may give insight on how she designed the C64 in a chip, what she did is not all
that difficult or earth shattering. The real issue is that the C64DTV is an ASIC. That stands
for Application Specific Integrated Circuit. The company that developed this chip with her
guiding consultaion probably cost in the range of $500,000 or more to do. The rest of the
project development probably cost another $500,000 to a $1 million.
Now if you have a nice cool $2 to $5 million laying around, one can do the same thing with a
Coco3. Otherwise the next best thing is to do something in the line of the C-One. Still that is
going to require an initial investment of at least a thousand dollars and a lot of volunteer's
Right now there is some work ongoing to move in that direction. With just a few and limited
resources, work will be slow. Then there are copyright infringement issues to worry about.
Microsoft has the copyright for ECB and DECB. The heart of the Coco. Inrecent time many
of the writers of the games for teh Coco have released to pu blic domain. That will be a
small issue there.
