The serial number can be broken into 3 areas...
The first two digits indicate the country of Manufacture
AY = Ayr, Scotland
BK = Germany
GA = Galway, Ireland
IQ = Somewhere else
NI = Salem, New Hampshire, USA
PC = Irvine, Scotland
KA = Kanata, Ontario, Canada
CX = Colorado Springs, CO, USA
WF = Westfield, MA, USA
AB = Albuquerque, NM, USA
The 3rd Digit indicates the year
7 = 1997 8 = 1998 9 = 1999 etc.
The 4th & 5th digits indicate the week of manufacture from
01 = 1st week in January
12 = 12th week after January 1st (End of March)
20 = Mid April
For a rough calculate take 4 weeks to the month
The remaining digits indicate the run number.
00005 = The 5th one made at this plant
00100 = The 100th one made at this plant

Subject: Place of manufacture for DEC equipment?
Is there a way to identify which DEC plant manufactured a specific piece of
equipment? I'm certainly aware of the Maynard, Massachusetts label on my
equipment and I'm pretty sure I've seen DEC Kanata, Canada on flipchip
handles. Maybe even PR serial numbers on computers built in Puerto Rico.
Can anyone supply any more extensive and/or detailed information?
