Diablo 31.

Al will correct me if I'm wrong, but AFAIK the use of the Diablo 44 on
Altos was pretty rare.

Yes, some people/companies (idiots, IMNSHO) used "mfd" or "MFD" for
microfarad.

Another stupidity is that in the US, "nf" (nanofarad) is almost
never used.

I don't have any clue about SECLATE timing, though.
