HP 64000 (64100A)
This was a machine to design hardware and software for a variety of microprocessors. It even housed an Eprom programmer, as well as having a wide variety of expansion boards and debugging tools were also available, depending on which microprocessors were being worked on.
Six workstations of different sorts could be connected to this machine.
Our machine has an Intel module for programming chips.
This is the HP61400A, introduced in 1979. It was a desktop workstation which contained ten expansion slots for various optional cards. The initial offering of this workstation required an external hard disk for all disk storage, although the disk could be shared by up to six workstations via the HP-IB (IEEE-488) instrumentation bus. Later, a dual floppy drive option was added so that a workstation could be used without the shared hard drive. This workstation used the same custom HP 16-bit microprocessor found in the HP 9845C workstation. Software and hardware was offered to develop 8-bit and 16-bit microprocessors.
Manufacturer: Hewlett Packard
