RE: 50th Anniversary of HP's First Computer
Also check out http://www.hp9825.com for more information on the development of the HP9100 and its desktop calculator/computer successors. The custom processor used in the HP 9810A, 9820A, 9830A and HP 9825 was *based* on the 2116A minicomputer. HP was at the forefront of developing early LSI NMOS ICs and helped Motorola and Intel along the way. In fact, if not for the HP 98xx desktop family, Intel *may* not have survived long enough to become what they are today. They certainly got a boost from it. Very fascinating reading!
