The PDP-12 Minicomputer
The PDP-12 minicomputer that I have comes in three cabinets; the first cabinet is the PDP-12 minicomputer
itself, with 8kW of core memory,
two tape drives (TU55), and vector graphics display unit (VR14).
See the Module Utilization chart for a listing of the cards.
The next two cabinets are joined together, and form the expansion cabinet.
The left cabinet contains an additional 24kW of core memory in the top half, and
the FPP-12 floating point unit in the bottom half.
The right cabinet contains a TC58 tape controller (most of the top half), and a bunch of other cool modules, listed below.
The nice thing about the main cabinet is that the back of the cabinet swings out for easy servicing of the cards.
The main unit, without the tape drives or CRT or top fans, consumes 580W.
The PDP-12 has been partially restored as of fall 2007.
