Acorn PC ARM Co-Processor

[Index by Function }     [Index by Company ]

The PC ARM Co-Processor is an ISA board designed to fit in a PC of the times with ISA card stlot. I think this is a predecessor to the Springboad ( see APP125 Springboard  brochure and the PCW article Springboard) . However it clearly isn't a Springboard, I will never get to test it because it is missing ita ROMs (and I don.t have a suitably old PC to have an ISA slot). Here are some pictures

 The Gold IC (IC1) in the center of the board is an ARM1 (VC2588 Autumn Acorn written on it). I don't know what the IC to the left is. The memory to the far left is 32 x Toshiba TC511000P-12 (1M x 1 Bit Dynamic RAM) giving 4Mb RAM. To the right at the top are 4 sockets (IC38-41) for the OS ROMs, these are missing). On the far right is an AMI 8640HCF mark Acorn Austria, I don't know what it is!
