Hi, just come across a couple of Multibus 1 card cages in a sale.

Described as SBC 80/30 Microprocessor Teaching Sysytem, in a custom metal case with PSU.

What I didn't realise was that neither actually had a processor card, oops, must be a standard Intel 8080 board. What is there is an Intel 64KB memory board, what looks like a cassette interface and what might be a EPROM programmer with a daughter board with four 2708s labeled ASM. This daughter board is market ASMEDIT SYS80/S synthese Lund Sweden.

The case has a 5 pin DIN, presumaby the cassette recorder, and a 25 way D socket for an RS232 terminal.

Eprom labels dated 1982.

Anyone come across this before at all please?

Back in the day, we used an 80/30 with pirated EPROM contents to run ISIS II as a cheap programmer's substitute for an Intel MDS. Worked pretty well, but you'd at a minimum need one of the Intel disk controllers As those are two cards (channel and interface), that'd leave only one empty slot for expansion.

But there's no reason that this couldn't run CP/M.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, almost anything 8080 based will run CP/M, but some exposure many years ago means I won't be doing it.

AsmEdit still seems to exist, but no historical info on the web site, presumably now dead and buried.
