Except for the lack of casing, another possibility
for the Electron is the Electron-to-GoMMC interface.
Although I'm reluctant to sell it as a ROM/RAM board,
I kind of designed it with that possibility in mind.

go) for 2 ROM banks and one for 8 RAM or 8 ROM banks.
Needs no Plus 1 either (plugs into the expansion slot).
