    DSI-32 and similar boards
    The Definicon boards (DSI-32, etc.) are related to the PD32 because the authors (Dave Rand & George Scolaro) are the same.

    Will Definicon's software work for PD-32 ?

    Udo Muller tested it and has some troubles with:
    http://www.cpu-ns32k.net/Defsoft.html
    About DSI-32 board:
    http://www.cpu-ns32k.net/Defhard.html


    P.S. He is looking for IBM AT with EGA card (for test this software)
    Looking for an old graphic card is not an option in 2015. If anybody in central Europe has still a functional PC-AT he or she should sent me a note.

    Not to my knowledge. The PD32 has its own software. It is similar but different than the Definicon DSI-32 board series. I've asked Dave Rand to post his PD32 software at the PD32 repository on Berklix.org

    I would be interested in building a few, looks like a fun project.

    Seems it's a software for an American Information Systems board.
    I've found virtually nothing about this company. They made an add-on 32000 cards

    This board also known under the name SYS32/20 by National Semiconductor
    National Semiconductor's SYS32/20 is a complete,
    high performance development package that converts
    an IBM-PC/AT or compatible system into an ideal
    environment for the support of Series 32000-based
    applications.
    ...
    The SYS32/20 contains the OpUS5™ operating system.
    Opus5 is a complete port of AT&T's UNIX System V Release 3
    (V.3), and is derived from GENIX V.3,
    National Semiconductor's port of UNIX System V.3.
