View Full Version : TI Professional Computer Speech Option

May 2nd, 2009, 02:37 PM
Hey everyone,

I'm looking for information on the TI Professional Computer Speech Option Kit P/N 2223056-0001.

It has it's own 8 bit TI microcontroller on it, TMS7000NL-2 and what I think may be an early DSP chip, the DP1000JDL. I can't find any information on that chip though.

It's a 2 board set that plugs into the TI Professional Computer. Information on it is scarce and I have no idea if there would be a demand for something like this from a collector.

The only thing I've been able to find on this is: http://www.nytimes.com/1984/09/18/science/personal-computers-computer-learns-its-masters-voice.html

Any idea?

Very kewl, and yes, should be very collectible, if the TI owner knows his (her?) sh!t. It was the best available for micros in it's day (IMHO).

...and if they have a Professional. They're heavy beasts. Each time I try to play with it, I give the monitor a heft, and it remains on my get-toit lists.
