Product Support Bulletin Subject: Using Expanded Memory with Equity and Apex Computers Date: 3/2/90 Page: 1 of 6 PSB No: S-0047C Originator: KAS ‘/“p& Q1. What is Expanded Memory? A. Conventional memory, managed by MS - DOS, is limited to 640K. In response to the need for greater amounts of accessible memory, the LIM EMS (Lotus/Intel/Microsoft Expanded Memory Specification) was introduced in 1984. EMS, version 3.2, provides usable memory beyond the 640K limit through “bank switching”. The expanded memory is divided into 16K portions called “pages”. The computer accesses thes..

PSB No: S-0047C Page: 2 of 6 Q3. What about the 155Mb RAM listed as the maximum for the Equity III +? A. This larger amount of RAM is the maximum usable memory range for an 80286 microprocessor and generally refers to extended memory. Extended memory starts at the 1Mb boundary and extends out to 16Mb. As it requires a 24 - bit address to access memory in this range, extended memory is handled by the protected mode of the 80286. Examples of currently available software that can switch into protected mode to use extended memory are Framework II, AutoCAD, the VDisk RAM disk and Xenix OS. Q4. H..
