I might mention there are some Tektronix to DEC boards, maybe Unibus on 
ebay if anyone has specialized Tek hardware that could be run by DEC.

I don't know any more than that, but am curious if anyone has any ideas 
about what devices Tektronix had with DEC PDP11s integrated in.

When I was first in school, there was a large system with what I'd guess 
was a larger PDP11 system (we had PDP 11/05 demos on another track to 
give time frame, 71-72).

The system Tektronix had was essentially what we'd call a sampling scope 
now with an elaborate tube to digitize samples, and the PDP 11 analyzing 
them.  Don't think it was ever a product, but it was massive, several 
bays.  Out local EE and IEEE groups arranged for the demo to stop at our 

I believe there were FlipChip type boards listed, but am not seeing them 
right now.  Boards below are clearly not for DEC boxes.
