Yes, that's it. I've just dug it out of of my pile...

The mainboard contains a 64 pin DIL CPU (almost certainly a 68000 or
68010), a 68440 DMA chip, 1TL1 HPIB interface + buffers, 68681 serial
chip, 512K DRAM, a couple of ROMs and TTL glue

Mine contains 3 expansion cards :

50962A SRM Coax Interface -- Z80A CPU, Z80A SIO, Z80A CTC, 8K SRAM, ROM<
TTL glue, some AMD analogue chip that seems to connect to the network
connecotr (BNC)

Human Interface (HPIB, HP-HIL, speaker connectors) -- 1RD2 HP-HIL chip,
9114 HPIB + buffers, 76494 sound chip (!), Intel microcontroller (8042?)

98204A Compoaite Video -- 6845, 2K SRAM, a couple of EPROMs, lots of TTL.

One day I'll find the time to investigate it fully...
