There was a company called NNC located in Huntington Beach Ca in the
late 70's or early 80's that made basic S-100 hardware. I'll ask a
friend to get the names and history, but you may have an actual NNC box
and not a vector graphics system.
I don't recall VG's history but I think that a flood of their hardware
appeared on the junk market and someone may have built up a box from
parts using an NNC mainframe.
The NNC company built chassis with a backplane and power supply
initially and tried to do the entire system before collapsing. The
manufacturer was actually a guy who built components from sheet metal,
and found that building computer boxes was more profitable. I don't
know if there was a connection to VG but that would not be impossible.
