Is there a "field guide" for HP 9000/300 systems like we have for DEC? I
would like to find more info on, for example, the 98547A RGB video
interface, 7958B Opt 550 disk drive unit, etc.
Also, in my 9000/375 there is a board which fits into a smaller card guide
assy (i.e., it is not the same physical size as the CPU and video modules,
but smaller) which has a paper sticker with several numbers including the
part number: A3057674-11.
It has an 80286 CPU chip on it which leads me to think its some sort of I/O
processor (?). No connector headers on the board; all connections go
through the edge connector. Can't find anything while searching on the
A3057 portion of the p/n (Axxxx is a type of part numbering scheme HP used
for some boards and stuff) nor on many combinations of parts of the p/n.
Thanks for your help.
BTW, while perusing the 'Net through Google looking for DEC SCSI boards I
found an RQZX1 (M5977) for Unibus for 'only' $2999.00 through a reseller
<http://www.varx.com/MODULES.HTML>. A Qbus RQZX1 was pegged at the same
price. Geeez, my wife is hoping to get only $2500 for her used 1993 Jeep
Grand Cherokee with 106k. Maybe they'll take a swap plus a few bucks for
either one? :-)
