The TM10 Magnetic Tape Control was the magnetic tape controller for the early PDP-10 models (KA10 and KI10) which had the PDP-10 I/O bus as a standard bus.

It connected to TU20 and TU79 magnetic tape drives, and the TU10 in 'Slave' configuration.

There were two versions, the TM10A and TM10B; the latter used the DF10 Data Channel for data transfers, to reduce the load on the CPU.
