The BillBoard, sometimes called the chimney, allowed code to be transferred between the Amiga and a Sun 2 workstation using Multibus. The Sun had its own board. The Multibus connection allowed for DMA "cycle stealing". The name for the BillBoard comes from its designer, Bill Kolb from the hardware group at Los Gatos.
