LSI Octopus Technical Manual (1)
The LSI Octopus was produced in 1985. This manual goes into more detail than the System Guide (which we also have in our collection) in explaining the functions of the Octopus.
From the preface:
'This Octopus technical manual is aimed at the system builder, programmer, hardware designer or the, justifiably, interested user who wishes to know more about the Octopus computer system. It is intended to be two documents in one - a hopefully fairly readable overview of the Octopus computer system and a highly detailed technical reference manual. In order to achieve this, the reader is urged to cover the main sections, skipping the Appendices at a first reading, to gain a basic feel for the overall system. This shuld only take one to two hours. The location of the technical details should then be clear and the manual's second role as a reference manual will become more relevant.'
This manual is available as a downloadable PDF and in hard copy at the Centre.
