The MP-B3 Mother Board is a 9.1" x 15.1" doubled sided plated thru hole board onto which all of the various computer processor and interface boards are plugged. The mother board also provides the line buffering and address decoding for up to eight interface boards. Although one of the eight must be the MP-S2 console interface (serial), the other seven may be any combination of serial (MP-S2) and parallel (MP-L2) interfaces the user may choose to have.
