Yep. The "Apple Workstation Interface" is an intellegent card that
fits in late-model Apple IIs (well... it *fits* in all of them, but
it only _works_ with a IIgs or expanded IIe). It has two 8-pin DINs
on the end of ribbon cables, one marked with an Apple Localtalk icon,
one with a printer icon.

The board itself has a 65SC02, two 6264 SRAMs, a Zilog Z8530 (common
to Macs, Suns and late-model COMBOARDS ;-), some glue logic, a
honkin' big Apple ASIC, and some AM26LS30/AM26LS32 level drivers.

There's a picture at:

It's the one at the bottom of the page.
