Thanks, but I think I've figured out that much already, Dr. Watson. I'd
like to know *who* might have made or used them... I'm somewhat
tempted to use some of those to build something out of, since the
connector is a 2x22 pin 0.156" spacing edge, which connectors are
'avalaible' for.

As far as fuzziness goes, I'm going to blame my camera... it seems to
suck for close-up/macro shots. If I weren't so lazy, I probably could
hook up the scanner and put these on it.

It's the text in the file name:

(HP logo) 02116-6119
H 741 6

On the handles are "TIME BASE GEN" and "A".

For the other similarly shaped card (12604-600001), there's labels stuck
near the part number that say "1046A" and "03142" and on one of the
handles is printed "HP DATA".
