This motherboard was built by Amiga users specifically for OS4, and the concept was to produce a simpler board, with fewer connectors and dependencies, that utilised USB for all I/O connections, as a new lower cost small footprint Power PC alternative to the A1-Micro. With no onboard graphics, 1 PCI slot is required for a graphics card, although a riser card is under investigation to provide more slots.
