Anyone have any info on the PEDISK II floppy controller?

Hi, All,

Long, long ago, I was tasked with finding a way to attach some 8"
floppies to PETs.  At the time, there was a current product, the
PEDISK II, that was a ROM-socket disk controller.  Money was never
allocated for the project, so we never bought one, but IIRC, it stood
up in the socket and had 2-3 flying leads with clips for extra signals
(R/W for one, possibly /RESET, etc) and presented a 34 or 50 pin
interface for externally-mounted disks.

I've googled and found ads and reviews from the period, but no
schematics or ROM dumps.  Anyone have any such thing?  Obviously it
didn't run CBM DOS; it must have had a simple "wedge DOS" on a ROM,
but still enjoy seeing anything about how it was made and how it
