Does anyone know what this does? Is for PC or Archimedes?

Is that an ISA connector?

Looking at the chips on there, I'd say it's for the PC. :)

Edit: Looks like a Springboard card to me!

Thanks, definitely a Springboard. I have the ROMs and mdfs has the PC software, so hopefully see it in MAME sometime.

Ooo. Any chance of imaging the ROMs?

Tho' this rings a little bell - are the ROMs the same as the ARM Eval Board that plugs into a Beeb? As it uses the Tube hardware interface I think it does.

Attached ROMs, looks like they're interleaved.

Yes, one for each byte address.

Ooo, they're not the Beeb ARM Eval ROMs. They have a help string of:
Acorn SpringBoard 1MByte Executive. Version 1.30 25th June 1987.
I shall investigate later.

(ROMs merged with MergeROMs)

Don't suppose you might sell this or swap it for some other hardware?

Sorry I don't have it. I'm just sharing the ROMs that I'd recently acquired and was curious what it was.

I've been in contact with Jules Richardson who has provided another Springboard set. The version and date matches the ROMs posted earlier but are slightly different.
