DECmate I

<computer> The first in DEC's series of miniaturised PDP-8 computers based on the Intersil 6120 [Harris 6120?] microprocessor and dedicated to wordprocessing.

The DECmate I was introduced in 1980 as the successor to the WT78.

The processor ran at 10 MHz, and was housed in a VT100 CRT terminal.

It was a very limted model, no EAE option was available, memory was 32 Kwords.

It used the RX02 8" dual floppy drive.

Options were the DP278-A and -B communication ports and RL278: 1 to 4 RL02 {cartridge disk} drives.
