Datum MDP/1-MPU

Front panel for Datum mini computer.  Seems to have been microprogrammed, judging by the front panel display / switch to examine or display control store.

16 bits, has a switch for selecting display or examine of 4 registers.

Also, nicely, it has hexadecimal display with the switches grouped by 4 bits.
