Documenting and upgrading the RiscPC

Over the last couple of years, I've been collecting the parts too upgrade my RiscPC with a second slice and 4 slot backplane. The parts aren't hard to get hold of but they can be hard to find at reasonable prices.

The RiscPC's modular screwless design makes the upgrade process simple and easy so I took the opportunity to document and of its other features too such as its 16-bit audio upgrade and a conversion from a rechargeable battery to a coin cell.

For more information about the RiscPC and it's upgrades, please take a look at the dedicated RiscPC pages.
