I'm developing a “truth table” based upon the presence of ICs on PowerCache adapters for various Macs or the lack thereof for comparison to other available data.
Presence of chips (assumedly PAL or CPLD ICs) indicates an adapter is ACTIVE
Lack of chips on an adapter indicates that it is PASSIVE.
Here is the info on the adapters I have in hand or info from pics I've found online:
SE/30-adapter is ACTIVE
IIsi---adapter is ACTIVE
LCIII--adapter is PASSIVE: no chips on board
Posting high resolution pics here of both sides of your adapter would be awesome! Such would be also make a great contribution to the NuBus Mafia project over on applefritter.
Pics found online indicating presence of chips on specific adapters would also work! Posting such here would be greatly appreciated.
If you've previously owned a PowerCache/Adapter combo or seen one, identification of a specific Mac's combo as represented in this family tree might also suffice!
I've also posted a WTB for a IIsi or SE/30 PowerCache adapter. I've got a spare LCIII adapter and OODLES of other trade goods as further enticements for a deal.
In advance, thanks much for any help you can give me in this endeavor.
