Computer Technology Limited or CTL

Computer Technology Limited (CTL) was a British computer company founded slightly later than Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) in the United States.

Founder Iann Barron had worked for Elliot Computing but left to form CTL when he couldn't persuade Elliott to incorporate his ideas in their next generation of computers. He left CTL in 1971, going on to form Inmos and develop the transputer.

The first CTL computer (the Modular One) appeared for sale in 1969.
