just a thought: the "P" makes "Plessey" pop up to my mind. They did make
Qbus stuff, like memory boards and various peripheral controllers.

A weird combination you have there, anyway: CPU, FDC, and CRTC on one
board is more like a single board computer than like a mix of peripheral


P.S.: Is your domain name what I think it is (DEC-10 machine
