Key features are the computer’s 20 MHz clock speed, on-board video,sound input capability, flexible expansion ([[NuBus]] or processor-direct slot), custom micro controller that controls the [[Apple Desktop Bus™ Bus]] (ADB), real-time clock, soft power control, power-on reset functions, and custom chip that combines [[SCSI]] (Small Computer Systems Interface) and SCC (Serial Communications Controller) functions.
