Officially it's just a pair of standard DEC 40 way ribbon cables.

But _unofficially_ I've seen it run with the signals going down a pair of the
round cables used with RK07 drives (not the RL ones which don't have
all pins wired). So that was ribbon cable - bulkhead connector - RK07
type cable - bulkhead connector - ribbon cable. And it worked.

I've run RL drives off a RLV11 on a unibus machine with a DW11-B. That
used interrupts and DMA. I would think a SCSI controller should work
