    Can I have a history lesson on this thing? What did it do?

    I found the attached manual. It shows the RIC 386 with other calibration test equipment.

    Reading between the lines, it looks like it is an Intel 386 based computer that runs MS-DOS. I suspect that it has some kind of commications port to talk to Tektronix test equipment.

    I downloaded Tek catalog from 1993, it is there, but not much info. Thanks for looking.
