Isotropic Computer, a PC designer and manufacturer, is producing the smallest 80286-based motherboard on the market. Based on the revolutionary Chips and Technologies Single Chip AT (SCAT) product, the diminutive board measures 4 × 7 inches. It operates at 12 MHz or 16 MHz, and plans call for a version that would operate at 20+ MHz (as soon as C & T offers the faster chip). Features include a variety of memory configurations—up to 16MB—with a selection of plug-in memory boards, selectable wait states, full LIM EMS 4.0 support, BIOS shadow ROM support, and a socket for an 80287 coprocessor. Isotropic is the first manufacturer to develop and release a system board based on this C & T design.
Isotropic's motherboard will be 100-percent IBM compatible and will initially be offered in a slimline cabinet and a regular AT-style cabinet.
