Company: Ronin / IMtronics, USA
Date: 1988
Amiga: 2000
Interface: CPU slot
Autoconfig ID: na

Processor
68020 @ 14 / 28 MHz, PGA (synchronous with the A2000)
optional PGA FPU (asynchronous)

optional memory board – H2-Memory
32 DIP sockets accept up to 16 MB RAM
possible configurations are 1, 2, 3, 4 MB with 256k×4 DIPs or 4, 8, 12, 16 MB with 1M×4 DIPs
DIPs must have at least 70 ns access time
memory does not autoconfig, software is needed
although the memory is mapped into the Zorro II memory space, it is not DMA-able
rules out other memory expansions in A2000-A

Notes
68000 fallback mode
older revisions needed the 68000 to be removed which made the fallback mode impossible
the AddBuffers command in the Startup-Sequence may cause hard disk errors – the command has to be removed
compatibility problems with Kickstart 2.0
