In 2014, A-EON Technology Ltd commissioned Varisys Ltd to design and produce the Tabor motherboard. A small batch of fifty was produced and distributed in a closed beta tester/developer programme.

Our designers, Varisys, were subsequently acquired by Ultra Electronics and, five years on, several minor components used in the build process are no longer available from suppliers, so changes to the motherboard design became necessary.

In 2018, A-EON Technology Ltd approached and entered into negotiations with Ultra Electronics to exclusively acquire the full design data. The process and delivery of design data was completed eleven months later.

During 2019, A-EON approached members of the original Varisys team to help evolve the Tabor project.

The A-EON A1222 Plus builds upon the older Tabor design with sections of the motherboard updated to address obsolescence of components.

To ensure there are no hardware surprises at least five motherboards are being manufactured to prove the updated A1222 Plus design changes. A-EON has partnered with ACube Systems s.r.l to handle this process.

Following the successful proof of design, the Early Adopter batch will be manufactured and it is currently estimated that delivery will commence in the second quarter of 2021.

The project has been beset by delays and extreme world events which has resulted in component shortages and massively increased manufacturing costs. Despite that the board was put into production in July 2023 and is expected to take some months to be completed.

Please note that due to the complexities of the project the estimated timescales are subject to change. Further official updates to this project will be made here.
