The UI750 Unibus Interface was a UNIBUS adapter for the VAX-11/750; it connected to the CPU/Memory Interconnect (CMI). It also provided the asynchronous serial line interface to the system console, and its associated TU58 mass storage device; the system's 'time of year' (ToY) clock; and the system hardware revision level field of the System Identification (SID) register.

It was implemented on one extended hex card, the L0004 Unibus Interface (UBI), which mounts in the VAX-11/750 backplane in a dedicated slot, slot number 4.
