OS and/or compiler for CompuPro CPU-32016?

Ahhh, a NS32xxx thread ...
... i love that processor :-)

Maybe i should dig out my Phoenix 16 board; it was manufactured by a german company
named Mayon Elektronik. It's a doublesize eurocard board, that contains a Z80 and a NS32016
processor. The Z80 part can act as a CP/M system (including access to the peripherals), the
NS32016 was accessable through a small dual ported ram. For the NS processor, there was
nearly no support, so i wrote a small monitor ...

... btw : does anyone have the CP/M cross software, that was available from National Semiconductor
(at least there was an assembler and a pascal compiler), it would be really nice to use it in proper style :)

Ciao Bernd
