Amongst the SE/30 collection crowd there is near fanatical interest
in the old Xceed Color 30, Color 30HR, and MacroColor 30 -- the cards
which install in an SE/30 and are compatible with the Grayscale board.
I've been slowly working my way around to designing a new card to do
the same function. FPGAs are fast and affordable and SRAM or fast
SDRAM is also affordable in the quantities needed.
If any of your documentation is related to hardware design as opposed
to user guides and user manuals I would be very grateful if I could
get a look at it.
One specific thing I've been wondering about is how one implements
quickdraw acceleration. Was there an Apple guide to doing this in
some of the developer materials, or was it something which each
company worked out on their own -- deciding which Quickdraw calls to
trap and send to the video card?
