A 16-bit microcomputer, designed around Digital's DCJ11 microprocessor
(used in the original PDP-11/53,
computers) in 1987. One of the last TPA's.
The 11/170 was housed in a BA23-type drawer
that had space for 8 quad-height qbus cards. The expansion bays in the
front contained mass storage units, like two full-height 5.25" or four
slim-line (half-height) drive units. The KFKI BA23 (just like the original)
was available as a desk-side, desk-top or rack-mount unit.
The qbus backplane was metric, original Digital cards could only be
used with proper adapters (NR5285, NR286).
