Hello. I am looking for the smallest motherboard (size around mini ITX) with at least one ISA connector. Does this exist? Thanks

These are cute but pricey.

it depends on what qualifies as a motherboard, really

There are tiny processor-on-modules that have ISA but you'd need to build an adapter board or cable - https://www.icop.com.tw/product_list/40

PC104 has adapters already as Plasma stated (shameless plug - Cheap Homebrew ISA->PC104 adapters )

if you want the smallest motherboard with a traditional ISA port then ICOP make some interesting stuff -

Thanks all! Rasteri, the picture of the MB you inserted in your post looks interesting, but I can't find a link to the supplier's website (ICOP?)
Could you please send that link?

I can't find it on icop's website either but the part number is VDX-6390, should be available from industrial computer suppliers (I can personally reommend DSL in the UK - https://www.dsl-ltd.co.uk/)

EDIT : you can find other vortex86 boards if you check their website - https://www.vortex86.com/products - click on each processor then go to the "EVB" tab to find evaluation boards, that's how I found this one

Probably PC/104 with an ISA adapter.

Seconded

Hello. Quick follow up: I emailed Vortex to see if the motherboard was still available. There were only 2 left hanging around in their stock but were not functional. No luck but thanks all for your contribution
