Just received the DEC F-11 CPU from my previous treasure hunt. This is the chip that powered the second generation of LSI-11 machines, including PDP-11/23 and PDP-11/24. Now I'm a proud owner of a PDP-11 on a chip. #retrocomputing #PDP11 #electronics
You can still find some in the USA, but I never expected to find one in China. But not surprising, I can imagine that someday, somewhere in Guiyu, a container full of scrapped industrial equipment arrived, one of them was a PDP-11 (or perhaps only a KDF11 CPU board), it was sold as scrap metal and got scavenged here.
@roytam1 J-11 has extensive chip-level documentation, but F-11 is more difficult, I only found system-level documentation and schematics for the KDF-11 CPU board. If I cannot find anything better, it's necessary to work backward from schematics.
@roytam1 Yep, I saw that one too. Need to do some "reverse-engineering" (in quote marks) from the schematics.
