Early  minicomputers were part of the electronics business itself. 
Witness the Fairchild Sentry ATE gear using the FST-1 minicomputer at 
around the time that Fairchild was rolling out its TTL and Macrologic 
lines.  24-bit more-or-less general-purpose.  I believe I wrote about 
what I'd deduced about the thing before Al uploaded some valuable 
information on it.

AFAIK, there's still a manufacturer in Israel still using one of the 
bed-of-nails Sentry test setups.
