I came across this old motherboard and can't find anything on it. The company is Up To Date Technology Inc. It has a copyright of 1984/1985 on the board. The S/N is 00987. The only other marking I see to identify it is on the back of the board where it has UTD07107-1. I can't find any info out there using this information. Has anyone ever heard of this company? I'm looking to sell it on eBay, so not sure if the obscurity makes it valuable or worthless.

The layout alone tells me it's a super conventional AT form factor 286 board, probably produced by an OEM in Taiwan.

Not an exact match, but fairly close (http://artofhacking.com/th99/m/A-B/30492.htm), judging from component placement. Perhaps enough to get you going.

Definitely and early clone, however. Note that CLCC CPU socket--that to me says 6 or 8 MHz tops.

If you look at the 2nd photo, upper left hand corner, you'll see that it was made in the USA. That alone makes it interesting to me.

I can't jump to conclusions. I'm surrounded by stuff that says it was made in the USA. Doesn't mean it WAS.
