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.

"This downgrades ATI Radeon 7000 capabilities from AGP x2 to AGP x0 (= PCI).
It means Radeon on the uA1-I board can work in PCI mode only.
But why they did it? No need for AGP in Amiga?"
Not in an industrial model, I would think. For example, a board used to drive a display on a train station would not need AGP. Nor would a touch-screen information display for a museum.
A PCI display is much better than AGA, and Amigas with AGA were being used successfully for a range of applications a few years ago.
