Sorry it took a while to get back to you- I've been off the air a few

These cards are approx. 6 inches by 9 inches in size, with double connectors
along the long side. I've always heard them called 6U VME cards...

Current eBay item #6714733561 is a example - I believe this is the same as
the Sparc2 card I have.


So - you need the chassis to plug them into- for power if nothing else.
There are serial/scsi/keyboard ports available, and sbus connectors as well.

I've not tested these so I can't vouch for their condition, though they look

That's about all I can tell you. I picked them up since they looked fun, and
I had thoughts about finding a chassis and running a bunch of them. Never
found a chassis, though, and it's time to make way for more realistic

I'd have to verify that the one board is an SS20 equivalent, but I'm pretty

If you want to know more, let me know.
