  • A2065 emulation mode - selectable by jumper
    • uses the drivers of the A2065
    • even the autoconfig IDs are set to the A2065's
    • the 79C90 IC may cause compatibilty problems, it is advisable replace it with a 7990, which is also on the A2065
  • the native mode uses a slightly different memory layout which allows an additional ROM on the board (though there is no empty socket for it)
  • SANA II compatible
  • slightly faster than the Commodore A2065
  • the BNC port is sometimes unreliable, the card works best with the AUI port
