Well just to cover this reply and the couple of off-list emails I've
had, I'm looking for *some sort* of framebuffer that I can fit to my
PDP-11/73. Ideally it should be able to do a couple of greyscales (But
1-bit would be fine) or colour, and if it can spit out RS-170ish video
that would be lovely. RGB I can probably do, *if* I can figure out
where I put the rather nice little Japanese-spec 12" colour monitor I
I've got loads of quad-height slots free.
Now, I've been offered a VCB02 set, which I believe is from a MicroVAX.
Will these work in a PDP11? Would I need to make any mods? Bear in
mind that I'm most likely going to write the software from scratch.
