Ok, took a closer look at the paradise card in my IBM 5150.

It's actually two full length boards, stacked together with standoffs. The
"main" board has on the back bracket (from top to bottom), a two position
slide switch, a DE9, an RCA jack, and another DE9. Has a sticker saying
"DM104338", I'm guessing a serial number maybe. Etched on the board is "Assy

On the second board in the stack, it says "Paradise Systems, Inc." and
"Multidisplay card". Silkscreened on the board is "Assy 15200", and "CADAC
M01". Also has a sticker, "DM504338", and here's the kicker... hanging off
this full length "daughter card" is a ribbon cable that goes to a 2nd
bracket with a DB25F connector, I would guess parallel port.

>From googling on the net, best I can decipher (VERY little info on it), it
may be a combo MDA/CGA card.

Can anyone fill in any more info?
