V > V-MARC > 88a   


This computer was probably intended for holding OEM programs thanks to its 8 cartridge slots. Cartridges could be ROM, for programs, or RAM to store data.

The internal O.S. allowed for management of these cartridges, running programs or copying data from one cartridge to another. The content of a cartridge could be sent through the serial interface.

The machine could be powered by either an AC adaptor or an internal NiCd battery.

A V-Marc II was also sold with same features but probably had more RAM.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
