Description

The object is a standard snap-on panel cover of the type used on most PDP equipment racks. This one is half-height. It has one row of 36 indicator lights with associated electronic drive circuitry on a printed circuit board mounted on the back. The circuit board has two 22-pin male connectors. There is a ribbon cable plugged onto one of these connectors with a flip-chip card mounted on the other end. The object has a pink paper label marked "PDP-12" tied to the ribbon cable, but no other indication that it might have been found with any particular object.
