The VAX-11 was a family of minicomputers developed and manufactured by
Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) using processors implementing the VAX instruction set architecture (ISA). The VAX-11/780 was the first VAX computer.

The VAX-11/780, code-named "Star", was introduced on 25 October 1977 at DEC's Annual Meeting of Shareholders.[1] It was the first computer to implement the VAX architecture. The VAX-11/780 central processing unit (CPU) was built from transistor-transistor logic (TTL) devices and had a 200 ns cycle time (5 MHz) and a 2 kB cache. Memory and I/O were accessed via the Synchronous Backplane Interconnect (SBI).
