OLIVETTI  A5
Olivetti introduced a mainframe about 1960 which was called ELEA, then in 1965 the Programma 101 - which was probably the world's first real desktop computer. Then a little later they introduced the Audiotronic range of "office computers". The first was the A770, which was replaced by the A7. The A5 was the desktop version. The Olivetti Audit 5 or A5 was largely an electro mechanical computer. It printed via a golf ball typewritter mechanism at the astonishing speed of 16 character per second...
TRIUMPH ADLER  TA-1600
The TA 1600 system was introduced in 1983 at the CeBIT (which was only a part of the "Hannover-Messe" by that time). TA showed a few sample applications and the 1600 family in general. Triumph Adler's hardware included also the 1600/20-3 which was supplied with a permanent-swap-HDD-unit. This unit had a memory/storage capacity of 2 x 8 MB (Winchester technology). Triumph Adler said the system (the 1600) will fit the demand of medium-sized businesses, due to the facts that these companies w...
MIDWICH Microcontroller
Called the Midwich Microcontroller, this British computer was developped to provide a small desktop micro capable of running other equipment throug a variety of interface cards.

SPECTRAVIDEO  SV 328
The Spectravideo SV 328 was the ancestor of the Spectravideo MSX SV-728 (it had the same case and almost all its features) and the successor of the SV-318. This computer wasn't a MSX machine, even though its hardware design was almost the same as MSX computers. Its Microsoft Extended Basic was also close to the MSX Basic but not fully compatible. The cartridge slot couldn't use MSX cartridges. Ho...

NEC  PC 9801 F
The PC-9801 was a very popular PC in Japan. PC-9801's design was very similar to IBM-PC, but was slightly extended. VRAM (Video RAM) is strongly extended from original IBM-PC, enabling it to display kanji characters without bitmap memory (as ASCII characters). But I/O systems, Interrupt systems are almost the same. There were in fact three models : F1, F2 and F3. Whereas F1 & F2 models have only 128k RAM, the F3 had 256 kb RAM and 10 Mb hard-disk built-in.

HEWLETT PACKARD  HP-9836
Iused the 9816/216, and the 9836 to program custom applications in HPBASIC for my customers who purchased HP vibration measurement products. That language was designed from the ground up to control instruments over the HPIB/GPIB interface that HP invented, and also over other interfaces. The big drawback of this language (which can run as a Windows application nowadays) is the lack of support for STRUCTURES, which can make programming a large, multi channeled system a real pain in the neck. I later ran HP VISTA,HP SINE, and SDRC software on the Series 300 systems under HPUX to make multi channel input/output vibration measurements on the HP3565S hardware. We are talking about testing satelites or aircraft with four to six input shakers, and hundreds of simultaneous acceleration response channels.
