has been distributed successfully in the
market in the 70s of last century.
These systems were competing on the market with
systems of many other
manufacturers (the variety of major computer
manufacturers was much higher than
today), such as with the PDP-8
from Digital Equipment Corporation
or the NOVA
from Data General.
While the knowhow of the american competitors can
be found well documented
on the internet (sometimes even FPGA
implementations exist), the knowledge of the
systems developed by Otto
is threatened to get lost (as well as
of many other interesting systems).
I'm therefore seeking documents (circuit
diagrams, manuals, photos, ...),
programs (listings, EPROMs, floppy disks ...) as
well as any hardware of these
systems and ask all those, who can contribute
something to my collection,
The same applies to other interesting systems - my
be extended by additionally systems, if
reasonable or I can pass informations and
donations into the "good hands" of other
enthusiasts, for example, to members
of the Verein
zum Erhalt klassischer Computer e. V.
