Aries B20 20k RAM expansion board - Ian Rowlings

THE first thing to consider with any board such as this is how easy is it to fit inside a BBC micro. You might have heard horror stories with other boards about soldering to chips and bending pins, but not in this case. As long as you can take the lid off your BBC and remove chips carefully you'll have no problems with the Aries B20. You first remove the 6502 chip and refit it into the Aries board then fit the board back into the empty socket. Finally, the special ROM supplied is slotted into one of the spare sideways ROM sockets. Detailed information on fitting and using the hardware is supplied with the kit.
