Large version of the Acorn 32016 2nd Processor board, because of the number of memory chips (8*16).
Date : Unknown
This is the Acorn National Semiconductor 32016 2nd
processor, the "Large" refers to the memory size which is 4 MB. The card
almost certainly comes from an Acorn Cambridge Workstation, as it would not fit into the standard Acorn "cheese wedge" box.
The CPU is in the top right hand
corner with an empty socket for a floating point co-processor next to
it. The processor and other gold labelled chips are missing their heat
sinks. The socket with the Ferranti ULA next to it is the Tube connector
to connect to a BBC Micro. Most of the rest of the board is taken up
with memory chips.
