The first 286 and 386 systems of the Dutch manufacturer Tulip were built
with this design (resp. AT Compact and AT 386).
In the AT 386 the processor was on one board, and the memory on another.
They had special connectors at the top side of the boards to connect the CPU
board to the (one or two) memory boards.
