If we can find a way to make it for cheap would could produce them and have a bigger dreamcast online community.

If someone was really going to remake this thing they would have one on-hand though. There are only 4 ICs on the board. The Realtek 8139C is easily obtainable. I'm not sure about the Pulse IC. Two of the ICs can't be read from that photo though. Everything else is just common electronic components. The values for each of those components would need to be determined.
If the schematic for this board was sent to a pcb manufacturer the costs would still be well below the $180 bba goes for. I imagine it would sell for probably 40-80$. http://compare.ebay.com/like/3705674528 ... si=y&cbt=y 33 Realtek controllers for $25 I would say that is pretty cheap.
