1978 - SR70 Hardware Functional Specifications.  (there's a couple missing pages, yes, I know.  <grin>)

 

Never released; TMS9900 small business computer.  Maybe the mythical TI-99/7?

This is a real highlight Acadiel! Thanks so much for providing this.

Since a few years I am in contact with one of the software engineers, that was working on a secret tms9900 computer project at TI.

She still knows a lot of facts about it. It what a very interrupt driven operating system and less limited than the 99/4, but she forgot the project name.

Now we finally can get confirmation if it was that project she was working on.

She worked on drivers and on the operating system.

That computer did run on a full CRT with full keyboard and the interrupt handler allowed to do background printing.

Is there any more documents on the SR70 in the lot?

That’s all that’s in the lot about the SR-70 (99/7), I’m afraid. I saw in your interviews confirmation that the SR-70 was also called the 99/7, so now we have proof of what it was supposed to be!
