I was not aware of this unit. Thanks for the pointer.

Looks like it has a variety of targets. That Zilog 16C32 is a real
kitchen-sink serial chip, way more complicated than the Z8530.
It is definitely way more advanced than the stuff I was working with
from the mid-70s and early-80s.
Overkill for this task, but definitely capable, depending on what the
PCI end looks like. The serial chip is fine. It will do whatever.
