@ amigakit

Can you talk a bit about the design choices that went into this? I imagine there's a technical rationale: I'm curious why one of the jumper options is 5.5MB instead of 6MB, and also why there's no 2MB option. (Unfortunately, this board isn't suitable for me since my Zorro II bus can only fit another 2MB.)

Still, good to have this on the market. With accelerators becoming so rare, an easy way to add a bit of RAM is certainly handy.

Hi

The 5.5MB mode is 4MB plus the 1.5MB in the Ranger memory space.  The jumpers are used to configure it to a range of memory options so it can be compatible with a wide range of other cards.

Ah, so the options are basically all banks, half banks, and half banks + Ranger?
