    processor
  • 68020 / 68030 @ 14.3 MHz, PGA
    • the 68030 needs a small passive adaptor board (contains only the PGA socket and some pull-up resistors)
    • the 68020 connects directly to its socket, without the adaptor
  • 68881 @ 16 or 20 MHz, PGA
  • the board does not work without the FPU
    optional memory board - H1-Memory
  • 32 DIP sockets accept up to 4 MB RAM
  • possible configurations are 1, 2, 3, 4 MB with 256k×4 DIPs
  • does not autoconfig the memory, AddMem software is necessary
  • although the memory is mapped inside the 68000 memory space, it is not DMA-able
  • has problems with external memory expansions (for example the early revisions of Golem RAM Box do not work)
    notes
  • connects into the 68000 socket
  • no 68000 fallback mode
  • does not fit into the A500 / A2000
