HP 5036A Microprocessor Lab

The HP 5036A Microprocessor Lab is was a learning tool used to teach students and engineers about the use and maintenance of a microprocessor.  It came mounted in a small briefcase with slots for the manual and other documentation as well as the processor setup itself.

It ran HP's 8085A CPU with 2kb of ROM and 1kb of RAM.  A six-digit LED display showed address and register data, and the output port features 8 LEDs, one for each line.  Switches can be used to run programs and create loops, and jumpers could be used to simulate hardware faults.

The 5036A shipped with a comprehensive course book taking users through the machine and advising on where to take their learning next.
