A family of micros

The NCR 9010 is a very versatile and flexible family of multipurpose micro­processor systems including:

Personal Computer – as an executive workstation.

Small Business System – for general business control in the smaller com­pany or departmental processing in the larger company.

Satellite Terminal – intelligent, pro­grammable, in communication with NCR or non-NCR computers. Network Controller – controlling up to 16 NCR financial, retail or general purpose terminals.

Factory Terminal Controller –controll­ing NCR data pathing terminals. This system will be known as the DPS 10. Scientific Workstation – this is based upon an auxiliary language processor using the programming language PASCAL. It is ideally situated to the university market. The auxiliary lan­guage processor is based upon four bit-slice processors and it is designed to handle all processing functions with the exception of input/output, which is handled by the existing processor.

The personal computer, NCR fac­tory terminal controller and the scien­tific workstations will be released later this year.
