The PCcard fits in the second CPU card slot on the RiscPC and enables it to run as a PC. These PCcards are also know as Gemini I cards because of they used a common card design.

I do not know the original specification of the ACA43, but it has been upgraded with an AMD 586 CPU and a cooling fan added.
