I assume you mean add-on cards with general-purpose programmable
processors on them (to list _all_ the ISA cards ever made would take more
storage than I have on this machine :-))
There were certauinly :
Transputer (both all-on-one cards (host adapater + transputer + RAM) and
68000 (and probably 68020, etc)
6502 (Apple ][ emulators)
Various DSPs (I've seen 56000 and TMS32025 ones)
Does the TMS34010 graphics processor count? (It's a general enough
processor that at least one stand-alone Xterminal ran the Xserver on it).
There was a ISA card with that on too.
I would be suprised if nobody had ever made a 32016 or Z80 card for the PC.
