 The AI lab PDP-10 had a "​10-11"​ interface with up to eight Unibuses. ​ Each Unibus is mapped into PDP-10 memory and can be used to attach a PDP-11. ​ Or other Unibus processors like the CONS Lisp machine, or the CHEOPS chess accelerator. ​ The TV-11 was a PDP-11/20 attached to 10-11 Unibus number 0, suggesting it was the first to use this facility. ​ It was shortly followed by the XGP-11, an PDP-11/10 driving the XGP printer. ​ The TV-11 has bitmapped framebuffers,​ a video switch, and a keyboard scanner. ​ It was used for raster display workstations around Tech Square. The AI lab PDP-10 had a "​10-11"​ interface with up to eight Unibuses. ​ Each Unibus is mapped into PDP-10 memory and can be used to attach a PDP-11. ​ Or other Unibus processors like the CONS Lisp machine, or the CHEOPS chess accelerator. ​ The TV-11 was a PDP-11/20 attached to 10-11 Unibus number 0, suggesting it was the first to use this facility. ​ It was shortly followed by the XGP-11, an PDP-11/10 driving the XGP printer. ​ The TV-11 has bitmapped framebuffers,​ a video switch, and a keyboard scanner. ​ It was used for raster display workstations around Tech Square.
