02.05.2011 New DENEB firmware V11
Unfortunately the beta testing phase for the current firmware update has taken longer than expected. Anyhow we can present now a new free firmware upgrade for all our customers with the DENEB USB2.0 controller card.
We provide with that firmware a workaround for a recently discovered Buster 11 bug, which should enable DENEB DMA operation under certain hardware configurations.

The AMIGAplus magazine offers a complete review and comparison of all available FlashROM solutions in its issue 07-08/2004 (#149).
We are proud to report that both first and second place in the ranking could be taken by the E3B products: ALGOR (PRO) made the first place with a full score of (6/6) points, while our ROMulus module achieved the second place with almost full score (5,5/6).

This article is a recommended literature for all people interested in acquiring a FlashROM solution, as not only hardware aspects, but also the delivered software for operating the cards was tested intensively. Regarding this point our E3B solutions did clearly outperform our competitors' software - the result of the tests points out that all other solutions were clearly declassed in this point.
Moreover the operation of the cards was tested in allday situations.

19.10.2003 OASE 2003 - E3B takes part
E3B will be present again at OASE 2003 in Graz.
Unfortunately Chris Hodges won't be able to participate due to universitary constraints.
For all visitors we offer this year some special deals: all HIGHWAY users can get an "online" upgrade of their HIGHWAY card with the expansion module ROMulus - the upgrade will be made live at the OASE show, so you won't have to ship the card in for upgrade.
Moreover, a special bundle of the FlashROM module ROMulus and the network module NORWAY is available - so within only one Zorro slot, you can gather a powerful USB controller, 512kB FlashROM and 10MBit networking functionality.

Please take a look at the ROMulus and NORWAY product pages for details.
