WDC11 = Winchester Disk Controller. Not SCSI, it might be SASI, but
probably not. Andromeda Systems made several controllers that emulated
DEC systems, including an SCDC SCSI controller and an ESDC (ESDI?)
controller. I think this Andromeda board connected to a box containing
an ST412-type drive, but I've never seen one close up so I don't know
for sure. It's quite possible it connects directly to an ST412-type
