Hi,

Can anyone identify this Microtbotics boatd, it has a name of... "Product No. 530, Copyright 1097 by Microbotics, Inc."
It appears to to be an adapter part board for an amiga 500.
Big Book of Amiga Hardware and rescource.cx and google show no results

well a just did a quick Google for Amiga 500 Microbotics and found this:


Looks like a Starboard 2. But you only have the bottom part… I.e missing the top portion.

Hi,
Thanks...I don't know how I missed that in my searchs.
I did have a 1000 with a Starboard, and just used it backwards on my 500.

This board and case I acquired in horse trading years ago, along with a SB to 2000 zorro adapter.
included in the trading was a Dataflyer 500 with ram....so the Starboard was shelved
and also traded away eventually, along with the 1000.

Ah, the good old days of lots of users and amiga clubs

Regards,
Peter
