The ARTIC960 is IBM's line of PCI & MCA ESCON cards that emulate 
client-side ESCON devices (periperhals, not CPUs).  I really wish I 
could get a hold of one, so I might be able to use it with my S/390, 
and maybe get it to boot at some point.

The connector you described is indeed an ESCON connector.
