What peripherals were available for the Apple I?

I know there was a cassette interface. But, were there any other "popular" Apple I peripherals available?

The reason I ask is that I am designing a SBC that hopes to have many things in common with the Apple I. I would like to claim compatibility with any card made for it but if there are only a couple or so, then I may not bother.

I imagine most cards were made by hobbyist?

Thanks for any input.

Electronic Systems advertised in BYTE magazine both a motherboard (a 10-slot expansion daughterboard) and a serial board. We know that at least one motherboard was bought. But with so few sales of the Apple-1, it is hard to characterize anything as "popular".

The only accessory that Apple sold was the ACI. There were instructions in magazines on how to hook up a printer.

Rich Dreher's CFFA-1 card is worth having.
Wendell Sander has several expansion board designs on his website.
