Anyone have any info on the Micromint MPX-16 Single Board Computer system?

When was it built and what might one be worth.

I did a search on the net and there is a MPX-16 reference manual available for sale!!
There is also information for MPX as well as few other SBCs here:

I have one MPX-16 here too and I will probably give it away for free or put it on e-bay with 1 starting price.

BTW from http://www.nleindex.com/index.php?pID=HTDI&sID=BrowseIndex&tID=E/546 can we read:


Build the Circuit Cellar MPX-16 computer system. Part 1. Any peripheral device designed to be installed in the IBM Personal Computer can be plugged into this 8088-based system. Est. cost: $1895 (assembled).
BYTE Nov 1982 (v.7#11) pg. 78

Build the Circuit Cellar MPX-16 computer system. Part 2. A continued description of an 8088-based system that shares its principles of operation with the IBM Personal Computer.

Build the Circuit Cellar MPX-16 computer system. Part 3. Serial and parallel I/O counters and timers, floppy-disk interface, and CP/M-86 operating system.

If anyone can locate those articles accessible in electronic form I'd be interested.
