Robotron. Sounds like something I would find in the middle of an abandoned shack in Fallout.

The "v" means they were produced after Via bought them out.

Constantly being worked on. Feel free to message me with any corrections or details of cards you would like me to research and add.

Ohhhhhh I always wondered what Llamatron was a take off of.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

Jason Scott just posted something about that on his twitter a few hours ago.

Your not Jason Scott are you? Because tbh I'm surprised he has no presence here.

Not usually, I guess from a distance you could mistake me for him, but my cat hasn't got as much white on him.

And it looks the part as well.

Got an extra PICMG bacplane with 14 slots to play with someday. I have a 18 slot dual segmented backplane today that is a bit to big. Old industrial gear are getting cheaper and i have seen some cool SBCs that is affordable. Waiting for a new 486 SBC i also buyed that will go in this backplane. Not sure what case all this would fit in.

I've never seen a board like that. ISA, VLB, PCI, Baby AT, and ATX? That'll be an excellent gaming rig for MS-DOS games. Maybe a Socket 370 SBC would be great as well (just my 2 cents).

I think it's not VLB, but rather some proprietary connector. Otherwise it's not clear where PCI can be attached to: there are no chips on the board.

Looks like the SBCs have the chips on there for the PCI, ISA, and VLB (what it looks like) and power connectors, which is dependent on the board itself. It's cool to see 5 LEDs for the +/-5V, +/-12V, and GND for diagnostic purposes, which is nice.

Its not VLB, its the cpu board connector AKA PICMG 1.0 or maybe 1.1. Its ISA/PCI and they're meant for a rack mount cases.

The two PICMG slots (the VLB looking ones) take a cpu board.

So that's what it is. The more you know. I've seen industrial SBC cards before, and that looks amazing.

The cool thing is having two or more hardware profiles for your OS or a duel boot and being able to change cpu boards. Say you could have a dual boot with dos and 7 and have a 486 and 1366 cpu board. Simply swap the board when you want to mess with dos.
But no PCIE, you need PICMG 1.3 for that then you lose isa. Some 1.3 boards have ISA via a beige chip however.

I thought about getting one with a SK8 board, but the prices are abit high and finding a SBC for SK8 is not that simple, let alone one with two or more sockets.

Interesting. I thought of building a better system with that type of board (too bad the backplanes don't have AGP slots), but prices are expensive.
