The Acorn AEH78 is a network card for the RiscPC and A7000 computers. As can be seen from the top view it is a rebadged i-cube EtherLAN 600 Combo adapter, with both RJ45 (10baseT) and BNC (10base2) connectors. It can autodetect which connector is in use. The adaptor uses a Macronics MX98905BFC Ethernet controller. The AEH78 has Acorn Access protocol in the Flash ROM.
