For the record, I have some manuals for some P850 series machines. From
P850 (TTL-based CPU): User manual (which includes the instruction set,
bootstrap listing, etc), CPU technical manaul (schematics of the CPU and
PSU bits, nothing on memory or I/O)
P851 (Philips custom bitslice) : User manual (also with instruction set,
etc), 2 volume techncial manual (schematics of the CPU, PSU, memory, some
I/O), Floppy disk system technical manual (with the CDC floppy drive
manual as well), etc
P854 (AM2900 bit slice) : CPU technical manual (preliminarly edition,
alas withot the microcode source), PSU manual (a very good manual for an
SMPSU, with schematics, waveforms, etc).
Some other stuff. I think I have a mnaul for a 4-port serial card that
includes schemaatics, ROM source, etc.
