I've seriously contemplated making my own matching memory expansion
module for my VXL/30 A500 cpu accelerator. Fairly complicated because I
have to create a DRAM controller. Thinking FGPA w/ a pre-made memory

Yeah, it's absolutely amazing what prices those things command. I'd
love to get a back-up A500 accelerator board.
I've been buying/collecting all types of amiga documentation. I've been
trying to really figure how it works --- alot of stuff happening inside
that computer from 20+ years ago.
I've made an external usb amiga floppy drive controller. Attaches to USB
on PC and a regular 34-pin floppy drive -- creates .ADFs for archiving,
emulators, etc. Fun project. It's prototyped and not easily/cost
effectively reproducible. But lots of fun.
