Well, since I was digging for the WDC LCD thingie, and didn't find it, I
should mention that I found a brief description of the Ad-Con boards. Here
128K Bytes RAM
2 serial ports
Synchronous mainframe link
Async, Bisync, HDLC, SDLC, X.25 terminal/protocol emulation
Introduced 1984, Cost $850
This, oddly, was not the high-end model. The AdCom2-I had double the
memory, was introduced in 1985 and was priced at $1495. Software was
included with each board. There was also a plane-Jane AdCom2 with a
printer port, clock/calendar and 64K of RAM, no encryption, introduced in
1983 and listed at $275.
Given the correct spelling of the thing (or at least how the field knew
it), I find references in:
Hope this helps.
