Legacy Hardware Support

ISA

We can offer a number of different options to support your ISA hardware, depending on your requirements.

If you require ISA DMA or up to 14 ISA slots, you should consider the ROBO-8777VG2A - a PICMG 1.0 SBC (Single Board Computer), which you can pair with a number of compatible backplanes.

If you are not familiar with PICMG SBC & Backplane technology, we can build you a complete bespoke system around your requirements, including compact form factors such as node chassis, take a look at our Salamander I Node for an example of this.

We also have the MB-HD620-H81 motherboard, which features 2 ISA slots (non-DMA) and is currently in production with planned availability until at least 2019! Be sure to check out our complete range of sample ISA Systems, or see our System Integration page for how we can build you a custom system and Contact us to discuss your requirements.

 

PCI

PCI slots are becoming a rarer sight on modern motherboards, particularly those from retail and commercial channels.

We have PCI Motherboards which are still in production that support up to 5 PCI Slots! We can also specify and build using PICMG SBC & Backplane technology to offer up to 18 PCI Slots or alternatively a Smaller Form Factor. Check out our complete sample range of PCI Systems, all of which can be customised to your requirements.

 

Floppy & Parallel Support

We can still offer support for the legacy Floppy & Parallel interfaces. Have a look at our sample Systems with Floppy Support, for examples. These are all designed around the ROBO-8777VG2A which supports both Floppy & Parallel interfaces.

 

Legacy OS Support

We understand that software is often unable to run on newer operating systems, which is why we can offer boards compatible with support for legacy operating systems. We often have stock of motherboards which officially support Windows 98 and NT 4.0 onwards, sometimes even older, depending on your hardware requirements. Contact us to discuss the options we currently have available.

Our ROBO-8777VG2A supports Windows 2000 onwards and we still have boards with planned availability until at least 2019 which support Windows XP and newer, such as the MB-HD620-H81.

The products listed on our website are just a selection of what we are able to offer, so please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements.
