The 11/05 and 11/10, or whatever you want to call them are rather unique. I
believe they are the only cpu in the PDP11 family with the slu built onto
the cpu boards, and have the the same cpu, M7260 and M7261, use about 6
different backplanes, most of then listed in the Unibus Troubleshooting
Guide. A lot of people have gotten into trouble thinking all the backplanes
were the same.
