At my alma mater, the physics department had an 11/20 with AD01 and AA11 analog I/O, as well as DR11-A digital I/O and KW11-P programmable clock. Originally that system ran DOS (8 kW, RC-11 system disk). One of the professors had extended DEC BASIC to drive those peripherals. For an honors project, I did the same and more with RT BASIC. Among other things, you could write interrupt handlers in BASIC to respond to digital inputs or clock signals.
I also wrote a crude CRT display program by sending X/Y pairs to the AD01 and then to the X and Y inputs of a scope. Refresh memory was on the RC11, using bus address increment to DMA directly from disk to AD01.
