  • socket for optional boot EPROM
  • A2065 emulation mode - selectable by jumper
    • uses the drivers of the A2065
    • even the autoconfig IDs are set to the A2065's
    • the 79C90 IC may cause compatibilty problems, it is advisable replace it with a 7990, which is also on the A2065
  • the native mode uses a slightly different memory layout which allows an additional ROM on the board (though there is no empty socket for it)
  • SANA II compatible
  • slightly faster than the Commodore A2065
  • the BNC port is sometimes unreliable, the card works best with the AUI port

  • onboard high speed serial interface - the same as Twister 1200
  • the card is prepared for an onboard parallel interface
  • two clock ports, one PCMCIA port and one external serial port
  • variable bus speed - it makes possible to run expansions nearly as slow as in the A1200 but it's even possible to go up to twice that speed
  • optional PCMCIA Ethernet modules
    • Unity-Net 10
    • 10Base-T and 10Base-2 connectors

    Notes
  • the Unity never left prototype status
    • standard version was too expensive
    • the cost reduced version was easily destroyable due to lacking buffers
