A tour of a PDP-11/34 system and its backplane

Continuing the discussion from Brand New (to me) PDP-11/34A … family:

I put together a tour of the PDP-11/34 that some of you might find interesting. It walks through the general physical architecture of a typical 11/34 system, then spends some time talking about the backplane topology and the usage of wire-wrap to configure the backplane.


45 min – thanks for the effort!


It’s easier to make long videos than shorter, better videos. :wink:
