Dual EtherStreamer MC 32 "Dual Dunes"?, FRU P/N 73G7141, P/N 73G7122(A) [P] [P]

Two EtherStreamers on the same PCB. Similar to the Dual LANStreamer.

Dual EtherStreamer MC 32 Early "Dual Dunes"?, FRU P/N 73G7141, P/N 73G7122(A) [P] [P]

Same as the newer revision above except the PCB doesn't have a provision for the 74F08 Quad-AND (U57). Instead the IC (EC) is glued to the board upside down ("dead bug"). It's wired to the DPADP10 front end chips and 73G2692 Multi-Protocol chips. A similar rework can be found on early ES 32 adapters.
