Microscribe is a division of Camdata Limited, which bought the Microscribe rights from Micro Terminals Limited in 2003. Microscribe was formed in the early 1980s and has shipped over 35 000 handheld devices to a wide variety of industries and organisations around the world. The product has evolved from being a dumb VT terminal via a 486 DOS unit to a Windows CE .NET computer.

The Microscribe range is known for its ruggedness being both water-protected to IP65 and droppable onto concrete. Variants have NATO stock codes and have been used in many military projects.
