> names I do not even recognize with my longevity in this business.
> Here's what I've got in DEC boards. Some boards are full-width with 4
> edge connectors. Other are half-width with 2 edge connectors.
> First, the half-width cards, showing quantity, part#, description:
> (2) M8017 (50-12499, ASYNCHRONOUS LINE INTR)
> (4) M8047 (50-13128, 32K 18-bit MOS MEM)
> (3) M7270 (50-13004, LSI-11 CPU)
> (3) M7941 (50-11573, PARALLEL LINE INPUT)
> (1) M8186 (50-13326, KDF11 CPU)
> Now for the full-width cards, one of each:
> M7948 (50-11994, LSI-11 FOUNDATION MODULE)
> M8189 (50-14313, KDF11-B)
> If you're also interested in the non-DEC Q-Bus boards, let me know.
> Oh, yeah. Also a Maxtor XT1140 disk drive, a venerable Seagate
> ST251-1, an apparent Rodime drive, a Micropolis 1304, a DEC RZ57, and
> a pair of 8" floppy diskette drives.
> I also have a couple of backplane/card cage items.
> Worse comes to worse, I can always pull the gold chips, sell the whole
> collection to my corner electronic scrap dealer. But if you can put
> it to good use, make me an offer on one or all boards. All boards
