Goupil 2

Goupil was the old french word for fox (renard). The Goupil was designed to be modular. It could be used as a home computer but its maim purpose was to be used in French schools in connection with other computers, or as a small server thanks to its built-in 300-baud modem.

The system was composed of a backplane used as a backbone to connect various cards: CPU card (a 6808 with 2 KB VRAM), RAM card (56 KB), disk controller, I/O card (keyboard and Parallel Centronics), acoustic modem, graphic card (with 24 KB VRAM).

The Goupil 2 was sold with a monochrome or color monitor, both could run simultaneously.

Frédéric G.Marand reports to us :
The standard configuration had 16k RAM and 12k Basic in ROM. This Basic was quite.... basic, as it didn't allow to do much things : all display access, apart from PRINT, was calling the BIOS. There were no peripheral apart from the keyboard and the screen. Only one standard interface : tape interface (that I never managed to use). On the other hand, there were a lot of options available, up to a network disk for 4 stations (Corvus Constellation).

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.
Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners.


Does anyone have any software or manuals for this machine please?
