Legacy ISA Motherboards
Some people think that ISA motherboards are extinct. They should have been extinct as they were introduced in the 80’s. However; they have proved to be very resilient and are still in demand in certain industrial automation applications.
At Interloper.com, we sell motherboards with ISA slots from 1 to 14 ISA slots. Some are new and some refurbished. We also sell computers with ISA slots and motherboard + CPU + Memory kits with ISA slots. We call them specialty upgrade kits with ISA slots.
ISA Motherboards are needed by companies looking for compatibility with legacy technology that require an ISA motherboard with ISA slots. An ISA motherboard with ISA slots is an invaluable platform for companies with heavy investment in machinery that still requires controller cards / SBCs that run off an ISA slot.
Interloper.com’s standard product line of ISA motherboard with ISA slot are available with one, two or three ISA slots. Whether your ISA card is full length or half length, we sure will have the right size ISA motherboard and chassis for you. Our ISA motherboard with ISA slots are compatible with a variety of older operating systems such as MS DOS, Windows 95, Windows 98, NT, 2000, XP etc.
The ISA bus is still used today for specialized industrial purposes. In 2008 a more modern ISA motherboard for Intel Core 2 Duo processors was released which in addition to other special I/O features, is equipped with two ISA slots. It is marketed to industrial and military users who have invested in expensive specialized ISA bus adaptor cards, which are not available in PCI bus versions. PC/104 bus, used in industrial and embedded applications, is a derivative of the ISA bus, utilizing the same signal lines with different connectors. The LPC bus has replaced the ISA bus as the connection to the legacy I/O devices on recent ISA motherboard; while physically quite different, LPC looks just like ISA to software, so that the peculiarities of ISA such as the 16 MB DMA limit (which corresponds to the full address space of the Intel 80286 CPU used in the original IBM AT) are likely to stick around for a while.
Many people think that computers with ISA slots will be either impossible to find or extremely expensive.
