The A9home is a small-form-factor desktop computer that runs RISC OS Adjust32. It first announced at the 2005 Wakefield Show, and following the withdrawl of the Iyonix RISC PC was the only hardware to be manufactured specifically for the RISC OS marketplace.
Measuring 168x103x53mm in size, it runs on a 400 MHz Samsung ARM9 processor. It has 128MB SDRAM main memory and 8MB video RAM. The internal hard disk has a capacity of 40GB. The front panel features two USB 1.1 ports, and microphone and a headphone sockets. On the rear, it has two USB 1.1 ports, two PS/2 ports, a 10/100 BaseT network port, an RS-232 serial port, and a power connection socket. Like the Mac mini, it is powered by an external PSU (5V, 20W). The front panel also features a power/reset switch, a status/health indicator, and a drive activity indicator LED. The A9home is not designed to be internally expanded.
The A9home can use a program called Aemulor to emulate older 26-bit applications. This was originally developed for Castle's Iyonix PC.
