The FM-11 was announced as a higher-end model of the FM-8 in November 1982, simultaneously with the mass market FM-7 machine. The FM-11 series was intended to be used in offices. FM stands for "Fujitsu Micro". The FM-11AD was released as the same time as the FM-11EX and FM-11ST. The FM-11ST is a cut-down version of the FM-11AD: F-Basic built-in ROM and no floppy disk drives on standard model.
Japanese characters can be displayed within a 16 x 16 pixels matrix. Chinese characters (JIS level 1 kanji) ROM available as an option offers: JIS level 1 2965 characters, JIS non-kanji 453 characters.
The FM-11AD later evolved into FM-11AD2 and FM-11AD2+. Based on a Motorola 6809 processor it became quite popular in Japan as a Flex (operating system available for the 6809 based computers) system.
