Because i couldn't find a decent picture of this board, i asked Xiri to be so kind to make a picture of it and share it with us:

This is useful for a Challenge S if you need two single width extension cards with DMA capability, like an extra SCSI option card with a 100baseT G100/G130 card. The Mezzanine (2 x diff SCSI + enet) which is usually found inside a Challenge S consumes one DMA channel, leaving only one for an extension card on top of the Mezzanine.

Previous discussions about this card were viewtopic.php?t=16728887

Thanks, Xiri
