  • does not support the 040's burst RAM access (7/7/7/7 clock cycles - 14.3 MB/s memory bandwidth)
  • on many A3640's the electrolyt capacitors are mounted in the wrong direction, reducing lifetime - even the PCB print is wrong

    • v3.1 works but has problems with certain Zorro cards which use DMA
    • v3.2 works correctly
  • with Kickstart 2.04 the card does not work with the combination of Ramsey-04 and static column fast RAM
    • at least bank 0 should be page mode RAM

    notes
  • the first processor card to feature a -1-1-1 burst
  • synchronous design
  • no FPU option as this would have caused too much load on the data bus and would have increased burst timing
  • RTC clock chip as well as battery have to be installed by the user, those were not included in the retail package to cut costs:
    • socket for RTC chip OKI6242 (or compatible)
    • battery socket for a CR1225 or CR1220 cell
  • used CPUs are installed (scratches/dents possible)
  • although socketed, the CPU is not intended to be changed/upgraded - a different logic would be needed for higher frequencies, and the warranty is lost if the sticker is removed
  • no deactivation of the card possible
  • after installation, the trapdoor doesn't fit (plastic parts of it have to be removed)
  • jumper to map 1MB of the memory to address 0x00c00000

  • fast burst timing of 2-1-1-1
  • OEM product for Vesalia
  • first examples were delivered without heat sink which caused problems with certain configurations
    • heat sinks were supplied free of charge by Vesalia to be installed by the user
    • the cards also had a logic missing a startup delay, causing problems with slow hard disk drives

  • card provides solder pads for FPU and FPU oscillator, although it is not available from manufacturer with equipped chip
    • with FPU, the load on the data bus is increased - disabling burst mode is recommended to have a stable operation, thus reducing speed of the card
    • the reduced speed resp. the need to disable the burst mode is the reason why the card has no socket and doesn't come with preinstalled FPU, as the manufacturer seeked for the fasted possible design
    • installing an FPU voids warranty
  • with the same CPU, the speed of the card is exactly the same as the predecessor ACA 1232
