Those provide a 'Posibus' interface to OMNIBUS machines. Posibus is a
peripheral bus found on all PDP-8/L and some PDP-8/i machines. There
aren't too many Posibus peripherals (the DF-32D comes to mind), but if
you had one on your -8/L, you could migrate it to your -8/e with the
You would need a set of 3 Berg-40-to-DEC-backplane cables - BC08J? to
connect the M8350 to the Posibus device.
I wouldn't throw it away, but you probabably don't have any immediate
need for it, unless you have some uncommon late-1960s peripherals.
