System 816

The Compupro 8/16 system was one of the last, big, expensive CP/M system that appeared at the end of the S-100 Bus and 8-bit professional systems era.

It was actually a typical S-100 box where the user could insert almost any S-100 card build by the manufacturer or anybody else.

As Compupro manufactured a large range of S-100 card, the system could be fitted with either 8-bit and/or 16-bit processor cards. One of the best-selling card was a dual processor 8088 + 8085 that allowed running both 8 bit CP/M and 16 bit MP/M software, at a speed of 2 or 5 Mhz, in a multi-user, multi-tasking environment.

Several advanced CPU cards were available later: Z80 at 8 Mhz, Intel 80286 and National Semiconductor 16032.

Due to the large range of available CPU cards, practically all operating systems and programming languages of the time could be used.

It appears that Compupro still exists and offers a limited support, spare parts and manual hard copies.



I have a CompuPro 8/16 used in the Digital Research Dallas sales office for about two years before being put in storage (in the mid 80''s). Is there interest in this system? It seems complete (with documentation). It includes a S100 card cage module (with power supply) and a dual-drive 8" floppy drive module. I also have unpacked about 500 lbs of documentation, manuals and CP/M boxed (and loose) software.
