Jan 30 2020 - BennVenn to release a flash/SD cartridge for Atari Lynx

BennVenn entered the Atari Lynx modding scene last year with his cheap alternative LCD screen mod and now he has his eyes on disrupting the SD/Flash cart market which is currently dominated by the Retro HQ SD Cart and the AgaCart. BennVenn's flash/SD cart is promised to have the following features...

  • Instant ROM load
  • Last loaded ROM memory
  • SD card storage
  • 512Kb SRAM, supporting loading of up to 512Kb Lynx ROMs
  • EEPROM saves (1024 kbit, 128b)
  • Open source MCU protocol (allowing custom menu loaders to be implemented)
  • Upgradeable firmware

    We even have the PCB board prototype layout for it, and yes it includes EEPROM, meaning that game saves will be available for those games that use EEPROM. Unfortunately for games that don't use EEPROM (all official Atari Lynx releases) no save states are planned.

We expect to be away for some time, until the fire has moved through. We're just hoping the farm, house and office is still here after it passes through!.
