LSI-11 chip set
The LSI-11 chip set CPU chip set is used in both LSI-11 models - the original LSI-11, and the later LSI-11/2. It is the Western Digital WD16/CP1600 (alternative designations); Western Digital later turned this into a product which was used in other systems.
The data path chip contains data paths, registers, and logic to perform micro-instructions; it includes a register file, the ALU, condition flags logic, and a data port which gives access to the QBUS' data/address lines.
The control chip contains micro-instruction sequencing, and control for the data port; it includes a 'programmable translation array', which decodes macro-instructions to produce microcode addresses, the 'location counter' (micro-program counter), the 'return register' (microcode subroutine return), and interrupt logic.
The uROMs all have the same pinout, and are wired in parallel, so they can be placed in any of the three uROM positions. The first two uROMs contain the basic PDP-11 instruction set; the third uROM is optional, and a number of different choices are available.
Some verions of the CPU boards also support the optional KUV11 Writeable Control Store.
There are a number of variants of all the various uROM chips in the base set; it is not known if all variants are completely inter-operable (i.e. any revision of any chip can be replaced with any other, and have the machine still work), so combinations will be listed.
Chip numbers of the form 23-xxxxx-rr, etc are DEC part numbers (where 'rr' seems to represent a revision number - 0, if not given); the corresponding Western Digital numbers are xxxxy, etc (where the 'x's are digits, and the 'y' a letter).
The Data Path chip is a 1611H (various DEC part numbers), and the Control chip is a 2007C (ditto); the uROM chips are all 30xxy.
The following sets (Data, Control, uROMs) have been observed (the first three on LSI-11/2 cards):
- 1611H 21-11549-01, 2007C 23-002C4, 3010A 23-001B5, 3007D 23-002B5
- 1611H 21-16890, 2007C 23-002C4, 3010D 23-001B5, 3007D 23-007B5
- 1611H 21-16890, 2007C 23-003C4, 3010D 23-008B5, 3007D 23-007B5
- unknown, unknown, 3010D 23-001B5, 3007D 23-002B5
The 3010D contains uROM addresses 0x000-0x1ff, and the 3007D 23-002B5 contains 0x200-0x3ff.
