The BMMU031A-001 is the memory controller from a Honeywell Level 6 (DPS 6) series minicomputer. The BMMU031A-001, primarily built from 7400 series TTL logic, controls four BCMM044A-001 64KB Memory-Pac cards which socket directly into the controller.

Honeywell Memory-Pacs seem to have been built with whatever 16384-bit dynamic RAM was handy at any given moment. The BCMM044A-001 was manufactured with multiple bins of National Semiconductor MM5290J, Texas Instruments TMS4116 and Toshiba TMM416D.
