, and a not-too-shabby audio amp all on one card.
They also had a Ramworks model that supported an external battery pack to retain contents of a ramdisk while the power was off. Infinitely cheaper than a Profile disk at a time when 2MB of ultra-fast disk was more than enough.
IIRC, Applied Engineering was based in Dallas, TX. Æ was the symbol used as their corporate logo.
Applied Engineering was a team of bad mofos!
