DC2N3: upgraded micro-controller for new units

The testing of the new micro-controller for DC2N3-128k has finished. The MCU itself is more expensive but it has 8 times the RAM DC2N3 has got and 4 times its program memory: Even very slow USB drives seem to perform fine with the extra buffering and the DC2N3 logo fits entirely in ROM so no need to load it from disk 🙂

The very first DC2N3-128k prototype is for sale! Here it is:

All new new units will be DC2N3-128k; possibly all of them will have a black frame around the display but I am exploring in that area 🙂
