Borroughs Self-scan display panels

Thanks for Xmas and New Year holidays, I have got spare time to play with Burroughs Self-Scan matrix panels, which were waiting for me  quite a while.

I have a few panels, but have not had original Controller boards to test display panels, just a month ago I was lucky to buy functioning controller board,

so I played with panels and really like it.  Original  set consists of 3 boards: self-scan display panel with drivers board, controller board and power supply converter board.

I have took away power supply board (get circuit diagram here), which is not needed when you control the panel from standard +-12V and +5v power suppliers  

and your data generator (source of info  you want to show on display panel) is close to the panel too. I use

Now thinking to make something usefull on it.  If you have any ideas, please share it with me...

 

I also have 12 lines panel, which used to be dead, but now it's alive even it does not work 100% right yet
