You're right - the 170 was the first use of main frame wire wrap at CDC. I've
never seen any other machine that used twisted pair wire wrap.
DEC KL10B had a lot
of twisted pair wire-wrap on the
backplane. VAX 11/780 had
critical clock signals on twisted pair wire-wrap. These
were, in fact, ECL signals.
