The Durango cartridge hosts the ROM chip containing any program or game for the Durango-X computer.
You can use EPROM, EEPROM or Flash chips to store the software.
Durango-X has up to 32 KiB of ROM address space, but you could use bankswitching to store more information, with a suitable cartridge.
Currently, three kinds of cartridges have been developed:
- The standard mini-cartridge (suitable for most EPROMs, EEPROMs and Flash chips, up to 32 KiB) as pictured above.
- The Development Cartridge, which adds 32 KiB shadow RAM plus an SD Card reader.
- A recently developed bankswitching cartridge, suitable for 32-pin EPROMs and similar devices, ranging from 128 KiB to 1 MiB, switchable in either 16 or 32 KiB banks.
Also under development is a multi-cartridge, which will hold more than a ROM image, cycling between them simply by hitting the
All these cartridges use the same pinout.
