View Full Version : More Information on University Computer Kit (Intel 8086?-Late 70's)

Hi Everyone,

Excuse my ignorance, as this is my first post. I was going through the garage and found something from my dad's college days (electrical engineering major). It's apparently a "University Computer Kit" from Intel. 4 photos are below. Does anyone have any information about this kit? I tried googling/wikipedia and haven't come up with much. I asked my dad about it and he barely remember that he even had the kit.

Thank you in advance,

Welcome to the forum! That's an interesting find! When searching on MCS-86 some information can be found about similar kits from that era.

Probably very rare, whatever you, do don't throw it away.

Or you might consider selling it to someone on here perhaps :)

Well, I was considering selling it or perhaps donating it to a historical society of some kind. I imagine it couldn't be worth that much, right?

I also have the same type of kit from an older processor, but I'll have to dig around for that.

If anyone else has any more information about the kit itself of it's context, it'd be greatly appreciated :)
