Released by Kolff Computer Supplies in 1991, the Power PC Board Plus provides IBM XT emulation for the Amiga A500, A500 Plus, A600, A2000, A3000 and A4000.

The board features an NEC V30 processor running at 10MHz. It supports floppy drives and hard drives (with a special driver). It has 1MB of RAM, allowing it to emulate MGA, CGA, EGA, and VGA graphics modes. When the emulator is not in use the 1MB of RAM is assigned to the Amiga's own memory. The PC Board Plus communicates with the Amiga using the internal serial port. It can also access the Amiga's floppy controller and parallel port. Adlib and SoundBlaster sound cards are also emulated.
