KEF11-A chip installed

The KEF11-A floating point chip is an optional chip for PDP-11 CPUs which use the F-11 chip set. It contains microcode to implement the FP11-compatible floating point.

The KEF11-A requires the KTF11-A memory management chip, since the floating point registers are actually in the KTF11-A (the reason why is unknown; although the KEF11-A is microcode, there are enough pins for both the data bus, and the microcode bus).

The KEF11-A is another dual carrier: the chips on it are DEC part numbers 23-002C7-AA and 23-003C7-AA (only the A revision of both has been seen). The entire carrier is DEC part # 57-00001-01-A1 (although 57-00001-00 is occasionally seen - but with the same chip versions as the -01).
