Type: SME-800 (alias MDS-800) <<< >>> ^^^
Manufacturer: Intel (Siemens)
Technology: uP SAB 8080
32K RAM, 8K ROM
Price: about 30000.-
MDS: Microcomputer Devlopment System
SME: Siemens Microcomputer Entwicklungssystem
The successor system of the Intellec series is the MDS 800, that was
sold by Siemens in Germany under the desigantion SME 800. Here, the
front panel ?????????.
At first on this system there was the ISIS II operating system running.
Later Gary Kildall developed the CP/M operating system as well as the
PL/M programming language for this machine. By the way the floppy
controller for this system is based on a bipolar Bitslice system
(i3000), which is much more efficient than the i8080
microprocessor of the CPU.
