Panasonic
FS A1 FX

The Panasonic FS-A1 FX is a MSX2+ computer.

MSX2+ computers were only produced by Panasonic, Sony and Sanyo. There were only available in Japan...

The FS A1 FX had 64 KB RAM, 128 KB VRAM, built-in disk drive and A1 Cockpit Internal Software without FM-BIOS (MSX Music Basic ROM). It also features JIS 1st Class Kanji Support (128KB), but no built-in FM sound chipset, the sound cartridge was sold separately. Ren-Sha Turbo feature provides auto-fire mode while playing games.

Contrary to Sony and Sanyo MSX2+ systems which used a Z80A, the Panasonic systems used a Z80B CPU which could be set up to 6 MHz.

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.
