Wasn't the CXY08-M used in the DECserver 550 (or whatever it was called)? I
don't know if the OS's you mention support the board, but the DECserver that
used these had PDP-11/53 CPU's in them. I had a couple of the DECserver's,
but sadly had to dump them years ago. I kept a few of Serial boards and
cables, along with the other boards.
