On this link you will see three pictures of the MicroA1 "Industrial" motherboard: http://lain.ziaspace.com/~ryu/a1. On the pictures you can see that it still uses the ArticiaS northbridge, as well as the VIA 686B southbridge, but a standalone Sil0680 IDE controller is there as well.

Well. Those pictures aren't perfect for analysis but PC/104-Plus (PCI-104) Compliance reguires quite a strict specs to be followed. Both electrical and mechanical. And based on those pictures, closest I could it be reaching would be 'Bus-compatible', cause on uA1-I board has plenty variations from PCI-104 diemsions, component clearing requirements, mounting support etc.
And considering board allready having multitude of PCI connected chips (6 + normal extansion slot?) in the same PCI-bus as PCI-104 I seriously doubt it being Bus-compatible either. Afterall PCI-104 master is supposed to be able to handle Four add-on cards on a stack with slightly twisted timings.
I hope you'll test this before selling it to clients.. Industrial people aren't as forgiving as Amiga users.
