Collection Item Summary:

This is an unflown Pulse Code Modulation Master Unit, part of the Space Shuttle avionics suite. The PCMMU combines signals from a variety of sources, both analog and digital, on the Shuttle, and translates them into a digital form that is a standard way to transmit or receive information.
