HP 1000 double integer instructions info

RTE IV/B firmware is more commonly found in my experience.
RTE 6VM firmware is not ~rare~, but it is a little uncommon.
There is also a huge collection of microcode that is associated with
a 'Booster Microcode' board that extends the ALU / datapath.
This microcode and hardware is used to accelerate FFT's, and is
found in E-series CPU's used in HP's vibration control and analysis
systems (like a HP 54410B processor).
As far as I'm aware, there is no documentation for this configuration.
Is anyone aware of documentation for the 54410 variant of the 2113?
