Would it even be possible to change the previous CPU DSP to the newer ones that support phase II or would it have to be completely redesigned? Just a thought... don't know if the manufacturing could be as simple as a new cpu/dsp and command set?
To modify the PSR-500 family design to allow TDMA (like the PSR-800/900) would seem "as simple as" a new CPU, DSP, and associated hardware and software. However, that would be pretty expensive, with all of the NRE required. Especially when you compare it to the minimal NRE needed to just release the PSR-500 family as-is - and steer people who need TDMA toward Whistler's version of the PSR-800 or PSR-900.
