Hi folks,

Anyone know of any P4 or Athlon supporting motherboards with an ISA slot on-board. Its for an industrial application and we need one ISA slot. Swapping the ISA board for a pci based is out of the question as is redesign of the existing board.

Thanks,

Harry.

Soyo K7VTA 1 ISA
TYAN S2390B 1 ISA

both are KT-133a but claim to support XP's. I have never used either one.

Where's the ISA port?

Industrial PC? Go with an older system, like a PIII on a BX chipset. The last boards to have ISA slots were based on the VIA KT133A chipset, a relatively low performance, low stability chipset with compatability problems. The BX was the most stable, compatable chipset ever produced. I believe Intel was considered the most stable board producer. An SE400BX2 could use a PIII 1000E slot 1 (not 1000EB).

Here is another link with a picture! sorry can't find an English article but Tom's hardware is normally accurate. The ISA slot seems to be optional on both boards.

According to Tom this version is available. He also sees the 845G chipset as the natural successor to the BX.

We consider the BX upgrade problem at least twice a year and then put it off for another six months. The main difficulty being the high price and decreasing availablity of the Coppermine processor.

The poster did not say how many boards he needs, with a large order I'm sure QDI would deliver.
