I suspect it is using this board.
I am guessing the 1.5mb isn't cache, but is system memory on this board.
There is also the KDJ11-BF which has no memory on board. M8190-AE.
Nope, the M7554 is the PDP-11/53 CPU.
The 11/83 had its memory on the bus (either left or right of the module).
The 11/94 did NOT have memory on the bus, because *all* memory is
on the CPU module itself. Note that there are two versions of the 11/94.
One with 2 MB RAM and one with 4 MB RAM (all that can be addressed!).
The 2 MB version and the 4 MB version are identical, just half the RAM chip
population is not placed. However, all through-hole pins are soldered so
the upgrade from 2 MB to 4 MB would be a real PITA, *if* you'd try it at all!
