the sparcengine-20 -was- an ss20 -- bare board. there's an ultra-20
designed specifically to replace it in embedded systems, that also
happens to fit ss5/ss20 chassis... basically a u1/u1e chipset with a
socketed cpu [up to 400MHz known to work], no upa slot [;^<] and both
wide and narrow scsi. also only two sbus and iirc ss5-like cdrom
audio conn. i would really like to have one...
the 'white system' looks vy close to ss5-board size. the 'black
system' looks about ss2-size but the disk connectors are on the wrong
could be clone sparcengine-like boards though.
