DEC probably didn't make one at that time. although IIRC the TSV05 was a
Pertec controller that went with the TS05 magtape (a rebadged Cipher 880)
I am sure there were also third party cards from the likes of Emulex and
Dilog. I can't see why any of them would have problems in an 11/03
machine (modulo the normal problems with odd signals on the top 4 address
lines in some early backplanes).
