I happen to have a Atlantic Research Inc, serial datascope. It contains
several boards [std bus z80, rom/ram card, CRT5027 based crt controller Card]
however no manual. Someday I'll track down at least a schematic and fix
the CRT. The boards say T-bar on them so the instument may even be from
another company with the ACI label. It would be fun to get it operational.
