Not the ones I've seen. I've seen both 8 and 16 bit 3270 emulator boards,
some half length, some full length. Generally the older the board, the
bigger it is.

One good way to tell the difference between a 3270 and AUI ethernet
connector is the hardware used for the D-Sub connector. If it has a slide
lock for an AUI drop cable, it's almost certainly an ethernet board. If it
has 2 posts spaced out away from the D-Sub, it likely is an AUI ethernet
connector, and uses a clip with 2 screws to attach the drop cable to the
board. If it has standard D-Sub hardware, it is likely a 3270 emulator
