Nope, the IP12 SIMMS have an ASIC on board to handle (something
semi-undocumented). Looks like the SIMMS are 16-bits wide, too (2 rows
of 9 chips, with 2 of the chips a different capacity). Anyone tooling
up to make an adaptor might as well go ahead and make the SIMMS and
spare the physical install hassles (an adaptor probably wouldn't work
in an Indigo). I have some 2MB IP12 SIMMS that I've been mulling over
the possibility of putting higher capacity chips on, but I don't know
if I have chips to deal with the different-sized ECC/Parity (probably,
making a guess here though) components.
