I've started scanning a few more of the BHP docs I recovered a while back, and thought this one was interesting.
A 1973 gizmo that buffers just enough received data for a relay to close and power up a teleprinter's motor to
operating speed before printing, apparently half a second was sufficient it reckons.
The buffering is through a pair of 64 x 4-bit Fairchild 3341 FIFO memory chips.

One of the other docs mentions they had an ASR33 with this buffered motor control installed connected to PDP-11/10.
