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.
