Mid range data processing equipment and proffessional early computers
|type or manufacturer||year of construction||attached periphery||annotations|
|DEC Classic 8||1965||Big tape deck "580"(**), hard disc DF 32**, 12 KB additional memory**, teletype||The world's first mass-produced "mini"computer with very low serial number. The classic 8 and the peripheral devices do not contain ICs. It is a seccond-generation computer.|
|DEC PDP 8 I||1967-69||Teletype||The 8I is DEC's first calculator with integrated circuits after the "Classic-8". 8 KB core memory.|
|DEC PDP 8L||1968-70||teletype-printer, two additionall memories (now 12K), two DECTAPEs incl. controller (transistor technology), punchcard reader, analog-digital-transducer and many more||Early "Mini"-Computer with the size of a small cupboard
(approx. 300kg). Typical old versatile industrial computer.
The complete system is functionally attached.
|DEC PDP 12||1969-73||Teletype, etc.||Scientific laboratory computer with LINK-8 and PDP-8 mode.|
Fully equipped computer with more than 450 modules.
|DEC LAB 8e||1971/72||2 tape desks TU56, highspeed-punchcard reader and puncher, removable disk drive RK05, 8 inch floppy RX01, monitor VR12, AD-DA-converter, teletype||Laboratory Computer that weights half a ton|
|DEC PDP 11/20||1970||highspeed-punchcard reader and puncher, teletype||card M 729 is missing. First computer in DEC's PDP 11 production run with core memory technology|
|WANG 2200 A/B||1973||8-inch triple floppy disk rive, 36-cm removable hard-disc, punch card reader, reader for stacked cards, special BASIC-keyboard, multiple printers, teletype||Perhaps the first device that looks a bit like today's computers.
Pure BASIC-computer, CPU without microprocessor. CPU, power supply,
keyboard and monitor are seperated. Built in tape drive: 1,7KB per
meter. RAM: 8KB. disk drive: 5MB.
This very early computer is probably the only one in germany (in it's stage of expansion). Total value at that time: More than 100.000,- DM
|WANG PCS II||1976||Integrated, attached doublefloppy (5 ¼-inch)||The world's first personalcomputer (PC).|
|WANG 2200 VP**||1977||Peripheral compatible to 2200 A/B||VP: Very Powerful device with advanced Basic-2 by Wang|
|WANG 2200 MVP**||1979||type-wheel printer, additional periphery is compatible to the 2200 A/B||Computer for up to 4 work stations. 32K (64K) RAM. 80 MB hard disk system costed 80.000,- DM (that means 1000,-DM per MB) on its own and has to run in a climatized room.|
