The KB11-D CPU is the later CPU for the PDP-11/45; it differed from the earlier KB11-A CPU in that is used the synchronous FP11-C Floating-Point Processor as its optional FPP. Both that and the optional KT11-C Memory Management Unit plugged into the CPU's backplane.

In addition to main memory on the UNIBUS, the KB11-A could also use the special high-speed MS11 Semiconductor Memory System, specific to the PDP-11/45, which plugged into a special bus, the Fastbus, which was also part of the CPU's backplane.

Boards

The KB11-D board set included many of the same boards as the KB11-A CPU:

  • M8100 Data and Address Paths
  • M8101 General Register and Control
  • M8104 Processor Data and UNIBUS Registers
  • M8105 Timing and Miscellaneous Control
  • M8109 Timing Generator

with the following differences:

  • The M8102 Instruction Register and Decode was replaced with the M8132
  • The M8103 ROM and ROM Control was replaced with the M8123
  • The M8106 UNIBUS and Console Control was replaced with the M8119

(Note that the M8132 and M8123 are shared with the KB11-C CPU of the PDP-11/70.)

In addition, the CPU includes either:

  • M8116 Segmentation Jumper Board

used when the KT11-C Memory Management Unit (termed the KT11-CD in this CPU) is not present, or:

  • M8107 Segmentation Address Paths
  • M8108-YA Segmentation Status Registers

which comprise the KT11-CD (the M8108 Segmentation Status Registers board of the KT11-C was replaced with the M8108-YA variant).
