Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

Intel SDK 85 - System Design Kit

Every time Intel bought a new microprocessor to market, they would release a development kit with it, this kit was for developing the 8085 processor.

The kit included the motherboard, that could be populated with chips, a keyboard, speaker, and a small 6 digit LED display, and all the associated resistors, capacitors, and crystal. There was also a pre programmed ROM with a system monitor.
There were also ports for connecting I/O devices.

Our board has been fully populated and also has associated spare chips and paperwork.
The board has also been expanded from the tiny 256bts of RAM to 48K.

Manufacturer: Intel
Date: 1976
