Acorn ARM Evaluation System

The Acorn ARM Evaluation System for the BBC Micro was one of the first production RISC processors. The ARM Evaluation System was part of the development programme leading to the Acorn Archimedes and its early Arthur operating system.

The system was supplied in the standard BBC "cheese wedge" case and connects to the BBC Micro via the TUBE connector port on the base of the BBC.

Our unit has the additional 2Mb Memory Expansion card fitted. (0148,001)
