Nope, It's an LSI-11/02 Qbus machine woith a small cage and rack
and RX01(maybe an 02). You need Qbus for the varions analog IO
and digitial IO cards.

The PDT11/150 has no user bus and the oly IO is serial. It is however
the same LSI-11 chip set but no provision for the EIS/FIS. Yes, I know
you can piggy back one of the microms to do that but the board only
has 4 40 pin sockets that are filled where the LSI-11/03 Qbus board has 5.
