The powerful DP-09 single board computer was developed by Artisan Systems Corp. in Winchester MA.
It looks like the serial ports had no on-board RS-232 drivers or receivers, so probably used separate adapter boards. Also, there is no mention of a battery-backed-up time-of-day clock, which would be a major omission for a board with so many other features. It seemed to be a very powerful system, although a bit expensive.
The only information on the DP-09 I have found so far is from ads in '68' Micro Journal, and a press release for the INOS operating system for the DP-09 on pages 49-51 in the September 1985 issue. (INOS was a multi-user multi-tasking operating system similar to UNIX, and was developed by Introl, the makers of the Introl C compiler.)
