GESPAC Gescomp 720 / 730
GESPAC SA was a Swiss company who designed the G-64/96 Bus in 1979. This interface bus concept provides a simple way to interface microprocessor modules with memory and peripheral modules on a parallel bus. The G-64/96 Bus uses a simple, yet modern and powerful interface scheme which allows a higher level of functionality from the single height Eurocard form factor. The low overhead of the G-64/96 Bus interface greatly eases the design of custom boards by the User. This is why, even many year...
WELECT  W86
The W86 is a french computer released in 1983 by Welect. It's the second computer released by Welect after the W80.2. The W86 is powered by an Intel 8086 (hence its name) to catch up with the IBM PC compatible trend of the moment and is thus able to run MS-DOS. But the W86 is also equipped with a Z80A to also be CP/M compatible. It's thus an hybrid machine typical of the mid-80s when the professional industry was moving from CP/M to MS-DOS. There is 128 KB...
SMOKE SIGNAL CHIEFTAIN COMPUTERS The Chieftain 9822
In 1978, Smoke Signal Chieftain Computers (SSCC) released their first computer: The Chieftain, followed in 1980 by the Chieftain Business System, an update to the original Chieftain. At the start of 1982, the company introduced the Chieftain 9822, an update to the Business System featuring the same processor and static RAM options, as well as the same nine-slot bus equipped with the first two Chieftains. The system could be equipped with either two 8-inch or two 5.25-inch floppy drives and...

The following extensions/options were advertised for the Bridge 3C: - FPP: system calendar, 3 interval timers, one additional serial port, and a 9511 floating point processor wi...
OSM COMPUTER CORPORATION Zeus 3X
OSM Computer Corporation, based in Santa Clara California, produced several multi-user CP/M computers called Zeus. The Zeus 3X was released in 1983, and is a natural follow-up of previous systems: Zeus, Zeus II, Zeus 3. The Zeus 3X was available as the same time as the Zeus 4, in which it differs in some features (more users, more memory, tape drive, real time clock, etc.) making it more suited for larger companies. The OSM Z...

MOTOROLA  MEK-6802-D5
This is an educational / training kit for the 6802 CPU, but can also be used as a CPU board in a Motorola EXORciser development system. It has an hexadecimal keyboard and a 6 digits LED screen. The memory size is of 256 bytes plus an optional 1k. The first 128 bytes is in the MC6802 processor and is for user programs. This can be disabled with a wire link if the additional buffers are installed at the edge connector. The other 128 bytes is the MC6810 which was used for the stack and system v...
IPTVT (TRAIAN VUIA POLYTECHNICAL INSTITUTE) MicroTim+
The MicroTim+ was a Romanian unlicenced ZX Spectrum clone, and was the successor of the TIM-S. It was produced at the Timisoara factory in a very rectricted number (a short series of no more than a couple hundred computers). The MicroTim+ was slightly different from the MicroTim. It was made of two parts: a detachable keyboard (with statements and functions labeled next to the keys) and a main case housing the mother board. The...
EAGLE COMPUTERS INC. Eagle PC
This was an IBM PC compatible system. It could even boot the IBM PC system disks. Its overall design was smarter than the traditional IBM PC. The keyboard could be stored in a dedicated space under the main unit. The Eagle PC was first designed as a terminal to the Eagle 2000 System which used the 8086 chip as a client. However when IBM released the PC eagle turned it into a low end PC to compete. It worked without any fan and was thus quite silent, which was rare for an PC compatible syst...
TEXAS INSTRUMENTS  DS990
This DS990/1 system was the basic model of the DS990 series which was also comprised of the 990/2, 990/4, 990/10 and 990/12 models. They were targeted as multi-user business systems, and ran the DX10 then the DNOS (Distributed Network Operating System) OS's. The 990/1 was the only version including its own video display, although up to three serial dumb video terminals could be connected as well. Other versions had a separate main unit managing several terminals, m...
COLECO  Colecovision
After the success of their Telstar pong systems in the late 70's, Coleco decided to re-enter the videogame market, inspired by the success of cartridge based systems like the Atari VCS and Mattel Intellivision. As the Colecovision was released later than these competitors, it was possible for the Coleco engineers to put more hardware in the box while keeping the cost acceptable. The Colecovision is thus powered by a ...
PROCESSOR TECHNOLOGY CORP  SOL - 10 / 20
The Sol Computer was developed by Bob Marsh, Lee Felsenstein and Gordon French. Bob founded his company, Processor Technology, in April 1975 making 4K RAM memory boards for the Altair (cause MITS couldn't make a working memory board) In June 1975, Bob and Les Solomon (technical editor of Popular Electronics) dreamed up the Sol-20 computer, Bob had a bunch of cheap walnut that he originally intented to use in a digital clock, he didn't want it to go to waste and used it in the Sol-20 (see pict...
ACT Apricot F1
After the launch of the Apricot PC, largely inspired by the Victor S1 which sold well in the UK, ACT developed another computer, the Apricot F1. This new system was marketed equally as a business system and as a home-computer (with its TV video output for example). The design of the F1 is quite innovative with its original shape and infrared keyboard. The main unit is much more deep than large, and the straight line of the whole system was quite stylish for the time. There was no lead or...
SCIENTIFIC COMPUTER  SYMBOLICS 3600
This scientific computer had characteristics which were incredible. It had a 170 MB hard disk, when other computers used 10 MB hard disks! It was designed to make CAD or artificial intelligence applications. It used a graphic interface very similar to the Macintosh one (!) and was sold with a mouse. Several languages were supplied with the computer: Lisp, C, Fortran and, InterLISP (developed by Xerox). It used a custom CPU, the 68000 was used to run the keyboard, the mouse and to boot ...
RABBIT COMPUTER Wrap Bit II
A year after the announcement of the Rabbit RX83 Color Computer, the Hong-Kong based company reveal their new computer: the Wrap Bit II. It's weird machine powered by a Z80, built-in an IBM style keyboard and offering full Coleco Adam compatibility (with the right optional interface) ! Problem, we don't even know if the Wrap Bit II was ever really released... On power up the machine displays the "Rabbit Computer Inc" logo and waits for a key to be pressed....
MICROACE MicroAce
A few months after Sinclair released its ZX-80, Microace of Santa Ana, California launched a clone of this computer. It was exactly the same machine, but a minor modification made that it could be expanded to 2 KB of RAM. The internal ROM was also a pure copy of the Sinclair's original. Sinclair thus sued Microace but met with large difficulties because the judge couldn't seee the ROM content! Sinclair eventually won because the Microace keyboard was also iden...
