      Is this what you're talking about?

      Once you google this computer, you come up with the following from ClassicCmp:

        “Is that the TI system that has a bunch of modules that plug together? If
      so, I have the software book that goes with it. The name of it is "Software
      Design for MicroProcessors" by TI. I also have the brochure for the system
      along with the packing slip and misc papers from when someone ordered the
      book (only) from TI. Modules for the system were: LCM-1001 Microprogrammer
      Module, LCM-1002 Controller Module, LCM-1003 Memory Module and LCM-1004
      Input/Output Module.  There were also manuals for each module but I don't
      have them.”

      Texas Instruments computer question All:
       
          I just had a few memory bits shake back into alignment and I’m remembering a TI computer that was like a building block computer. It was housed in a rectangular off-white case that looked like a Radio Shack project box. One module had a front panel of sorts and there were two or three other connectible modules for memory and I/O expansion.
       
          I remember seeing an ad for it in BYTE but for the life of me, I don’t remember when or which issue -- but it’s between 1976 and 1988 :-)
       
          Is this ringing any bells with people? I did some googling on it tonight but without a partial name, all I’m turning up is the 99/4.    

      I haven't seen one before.
      But is it this one ?
