I used to work for a Corvus Distributor in Brooklyn, NY in the 1980's and never heard of this item.

If you find one, I hope you post details on this list as I'd be interested to learn more about it.

I'm still looking for one of the above.  This was a daughterboard designed 
to sandwich between a Z80 and its socket.  It carried the Corvus 
proprietary chipset and permitted any CP/M machine to become a client on 
their Omninet network.

If anyone even knows who has one, I'd appreciate a lead.  In a pinch, 
given good photos I can likely reverse engineer the PCB and build my own 
(have a slew of Apple 2 transporters to harvest the chips from).

The device is mentioned in one of the Appendices to DRI's CP/NET technical 
docs, FWIW.
