      Yeah, a programmer. My guess is the empty sockets should hold some logic chips, but someone removed them. Also, I would guess that this is a gang program adaptor unit for a larger system. On it's own, it can't do anything. It probably connects via the 40 pin socket (via ribbon cable & 40 pin headers) to a master unit. The 28 pin socket on it's own, would take a "master" ROM, the 8 other sockets would then be programmed with a copy. Lights go ON/OFF when done programming & verified. Mid 80's?

      Nice source for some ZIF sockets.

      Put a search on ebay, perhaps in time, someone sells the base unit?
