Sharp PC-1500

The Sharp PC-1500 was a pocket computer produced by Sharp in 1982. A clone was sold as the TRS-80 PC-2. The whole computer was designed around an 8-bit CPU similar to the Zilog Z80, but all laid-out in power-saving CMOS circuits. The programming language was BASIC. Later German engineers cracked the system and also provided an assembler for the machine. Later even a C compiler followed. An external memory module (8kB), the CE-155 was available later. A cost-reduced redesign with more memory, the PC-1500A, was also produced and also the PC-1501 at a later stage
