Description

These modules are PCBs intended to be inserted in a card cage. There is an extraction handle attached to the front of the card, on which a paper label containing the model number, serial number, and other information is printed.

Opposite the handle there are 47 bifurcated gold-plated contacts arranged in two rows. These boards were originally blank; however, board serial number 006360 has had some jumpers installed to tie some of the edge connector contacts together. Board serial number 053712 has holes cut to accommodate twelve 14-pin DIP sockets (nine of which are populated), a few passive components, and interconnection wiring of various colors installed.

All the cards have various quality control stamps on one or both sides of the PCB.
