The PDP-11/34 was the best selling model in Digital Equipment Corporation’s PDP line of minicomputers. The PDP line was not referred to as "computers" by Digital. This was because the word computer was associated with large, expensive machines which needed a computer center and large staff.

The PDP-11 processor was not a single chip. Instead, it was comprised of two seperate circuit boards which performed the processor operations.
