Digital Systems, Inc. was founded in 1968 by John Torode, a graduate student at the University of California at Berkeley. In the mid 1970s Torode built a floppy controller for his friend Gary Kildall, the creator of CP/M, to run CP/M on floppy drive. It became Digital Microsystems, or DMS, in the late 1970s. From 1979 to 1986 the company designed and manufactured microcomputer-based subsystems, computers, and one of the first microprocessor-based local area networks called HiNet. In 1987 DMS was sold to the British computer company Apricot Computers.
The DMS 3 is believed to be a CP/M machine with a Z80 CPU and 64KB RAM, and has a 5.25-inch floppy disk drive.
