This 7 slot Nova 1200 has arrived from California. It needs a lot of restoration work on the front panel and I also need to acquire a Nova 1200 CPU card and perhaps some additional memory (judging on the shape of the 4k core card in it!).
This example has R&D stencilled in red on its hood and an asset badge attached to the chassis labelled ‘Computer Operations Inc’. Perhaps this Nova was used in the development of their Tape System (based on the LINC Tape) and sold with interfaces for many different minis’ in the 70’s including the DG Nova?
This is another project for 2020/2021!
