Radius Rocket Daughterboards

Are you talking about additional ways to enhance the Rocket or something else? The Rockets all have 128k of L2 cache for their onboard CPU... I think?

Sorry, we're diving off on a tangent.

I think the Rockets do have 128k L2.

The proposal was to transmogrify the Rocket SCSI II board to fit in regular 040 sockets for host Macs. I proposed combining the Daystar slot-free adapter and the Sixty Eight Thousand RAID Warrior as an alternate path to realizing such a device, while perhaps adding a cached Quaddoubler equivalent in-line.

I'm only guessing that these little add-on boards are 040 PDS cards, FWIW. For all I know those custom Radius ICs could be providing some kind of bespoke I/O subsystem.

I’d guess you’re right. The RAID Warrior and SCSI bolt are verifiably PDS cards.
