Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

IFEL A5000 2MB RAM Upgrade (issue 1)

The A5000 came with either 1MB or 2MB RAM on the motherboard and a 1MB model could be upgraded to 2 MB by adding RAM on the motherboard. But the A5000, like all MEMC1 based computers, could address 4MB, so 2MB RAM upgrades were produced by Acorn and third parties to add 2MB RAM for a maximum 4MB. Actually some companies produced upgrades to 8MB using a second MEMC1. 

This is the 1995 M520 issue 1 upgrade.

Date : 1994

Manufacturer : IFEL

Physical Description : Expansion card.

This exhibit has a reference ID of CH54636. Please quote this reference ID in any communication with the Centre for Computing History.
