I have recently received 25+ old computers and these parts were in them, and I am having trouble Identifying them using the information on them. I prefer to have links to match my information. So my question(s) is(are): how to effectively identify parts with only the FCC id; what are the parts(listed below); can you provide a link?

All Three

FCC ID: EAX6GPSC499 --- Archive Corporation

Has the words ZEON 2 94V0 on the back. Also the cursive word Vitex.


Same as second in list

Same as last one

Same as first board

NOTE: If this is the wrong place to put this question, please notify me and I will request it's transferal to where it should go.

Don't know how to see the picture comments.. – user24527 Jun 3 '13 at 2:42
A view of each card's front side would be helpful. The type of ports on the card generally makes it a lot easier to figure out what the card does. – Radrider33 Jun 3 '13 at 2:46
Suggestion: get a tripod, or shine a stronger light on subjects (sunlight outdoors or by a window works well) to get the shutter speed down. – Kaz Jun 3 '13 at 2:50

What do you get form an FCC ID search – Tog Jun 3 '13 at 18:36

Just because I was bored.... :)

The adapter with the Intel processor and Archive Corporation chips is a PC/XT-bus 8-bit ISA SCSI card for Archive Corp's DAT tape drives.

The video adapter is a Cirrus Logic-based PC/AT-bus 16-bit ISA + VESA Local Bus VGA (probably SVGA) card. According to the FCC ID it's a Joytech Computer Co. Ltd. (now defunct) card that was built as an "OEM" product (no direct-to-user sales).

The suspected serial/parallel adapter is a generic PC/AT-bus 16-bit ISA "Super I/O" card with a Winbond chip. Hard to say who made it, as there were lots of these made by various Taiwanese companies. Super I/O in this case appears to be Parallel, Serial, IDE HDD, FDD and a Game port.


Fake Name is correct, mostly ISA cards for VGA and Serial/Parallel. Not sure if the last is SCSI, but the next part of your question is FCC ID.

And that's simple. Go to the FCC's ID Search page:

First Three Letters of the FCC ID go in the first box. This is like a manufacturer identification code.

The rest goes in the second box. Most of the time, you will get pictures and some forms, the manual, all in pdf format. If you are lucky, you get schematics, BOM and block diagrams.

Since you didn't provide the FCC IDs, you'll have to look them up yourself. Hope that helps.

And thank you for answering the other half of the question.. How am i supposed to click the check for you both? – user24527 Jun 3 '13 at 10:55
@user24527 you can't. Only one accepted answer per question, but you can up vote both. – cde Jun 3 '13 at 15:46
