ARMistice

A later version of the NuBus-based card that facilitated the running of a Newton development environment on a Mac OS desktop computer. Whereas the previous ARMageddon card connected to an external circuit board that replicated the physical Newton hardware, the ARMistice card was a self-contained “Newton on a board.”

Produced in 1993, the ARMistice card preceded the ARMadillo card. The cards were so named because of the ARM processor used in the Newton hardware.
