The MicroVAX was a family of low-end minicomputers developed and manufactured by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC). The first model, the MicroVAX I, was introduced in 1984. The MicroVAX family used processors that implemented the VAX instruction set architecture (ISA) and was succeeded by the VAX 4000.
The MicroVAX 3100 Series was introduced in 1987. These systems were all packaged in a desktop enclosure.
MicroVAX 3100 systems offer enhanced distributed computing capabilities and flexibility. They support more than 10,000 commercial and technical applications across local or wide area networks. MicroVAX 3100 systems support add-on synchronous options for wide area communications and asynchronous options, including modem options for terminal and printer connections. Networking allows communications in a variety of environments. PC clients based on MS-DOS, OS/2, and Macintosh can be connected to the MicroVAX 3100 system, enabling the entire business to share information. Digital's advanced client/server computing, based on NAS (Network Application Support), delivers a wide range of solutions to help integrate desktop workstations and PCs.
