At least. Might be one or two more.

Really?!? I used to have one (my Pro380 was a console to an 8530). I
have not seen it in many years. Wish I had it when I was at Lucent as
a consultant. They had one die and had to have one same-day shipped
from a digital broker - $150 for the card, $200 for shipping. I did go
home to look for mine - probably could have gotten the $150 and maybe
a little for delivery. :-(

I had no idea they were so neat. By "seems to contain..." do you mean
that there's a couple of 2661s (or some other UART) and some sort of
GPIB chip? (68488? There was a National Semi one, too, ISTR).

The elusive DECNA...
