Hi all. 

I recently bought a mystery blinkenlight panel. Closer inspection reveals it was manufactured by Intel in the early 70’s (1973), and some people on the book of faces suggested it was part of a “device multiplexer”(?)

I’m 95% confident it’s not strictly a “computer” blinkenlight panel, but rather an attached device, but that still hasn’t helped me narrow down what exactly it was from. 

I’ve not seen any early Intel stuff as rack-mount, so i’m wondering if it was a prototype, or maybe a piece of internal/non-commercial hardware for Intel's own use. 

I’m hoping someone here might be able to shed some light on this mystery.

Thanks in advance.
