I wasn't aware that the coco was based on a eval board design.
My memory is that the Coco design (MOT part of the project) was managed
by a marketing Group in Phoenix working closely with Tandy.

The only VDG eval board that I am aware of was the "MicroChroma kit" board.
That came out of Austin. It was a Kit of major parts with a PCB. The PCB 
designed by the applications group (Tim Ahrens, Jack Brown, and Hunter 
I wrote the TVBUG monitor for it as a "after hours" project. (About 2/3 
of the
code for TVBUG,  I lifted from MIKBUG with the help of Mike Wiles - the 
of MIKBUG.....)

As an aside, does anyone know what a MicroChroma kit would be worth today?
(I still have one - unassembled - in the back of a closet somewhere. 
Payment for
a "G-job" project..(grin).........)
