Nahh, it's completely physically different. Good guess though,
it's about the right size and vintage!


What's all that discrete crap in the lower-left corner? Cassette?
Sheesh I never realized at the time how badly laid out the board
was :-) All that wasted real estate! Why no blank/prototype DIPs
in the upper right?

Anyways, the SLC-1 has two DB25's out back, a smallish card edge
for TTY, NiCds along one side (mine now remoted) and no keypad or
LED display.

Might have similar architecture I suppose.

Since the SLC-1 has (umm, *is*) a ROM debugger, it can hex-dump
itself trivially:


Displays in the customary manner. I suppose I should figure out
where the EPROM is in the address space and make a backup copy.
