Data General Desktop

Home » Restorations » Data General Desktop

This Data General Desktop has arrived from Italy today (Dec 10th 2019) in a reasonably sorry state (thanks to the courier!).

What’s immediately surprising is its weight – it’s a heavy lump! 

It has a Winchester, Floppy and Tape Drive and was supplied with a 6261-2 which connects to the desktop via a DB15 cable. 

Inside the main chassis (E8711-N) I have found the following PCBs:

005-020621 – CPU1 without F/W Floating Point = Model DG/10
005-020622 – CPU2 128Kb Memory  
005-020375 – 256Kb Expansion
005-021071 – USAM 4 Line
005-021071 – USAM 4 Line

The system also has the following ‘modules’:

E8694-B2 – Power Supply
E6267-A – Floppy Disk
E6336 – Winchester Chassis containing: 
  (005-023675 –  Disk Controller PCB + 005-023553 – 120Mb MFM HD)
E6270 – Cartridge Tape Drive Chassis

This is another project for 2020!

here’s what’s inside:

Lots more to follow……
