CB Wilson - TI-99 related documents

Recommended Posts

August 1983.  The ALC (CC-40) Bottom CMOS Schematic Wiring Diagram.

 

Last one for a while.  These schematics are exhausting to scan and clean up.  Next up should be two folders I have called "ALC Mylars/Datasheets/Development and ALC Planning".  Followed by three gigantic folders all about the Waftertape drive.  Finally, I have a TI-88 ALEX (which is like Unit Testing) binder.  And, that's all she wrote.  One very full file cabinet.

This is a whole bunch of documentation from 1981-1982 about the planning, strategy, etc, for the ALC Program.

 

Note later on in the documentation the code words that were used - Lonestar was the ALC first iteration, or the CC-40.  Notice you see the "Superstar" or CC-70 listed here, you also see Squirrel - or "Ground Squirrel" for the TI-99/2, and also the TI-99/4 ALC (the TI99/4A).

 

Not sure what 'Pearl' is, though.  That term, I haven't heard before.

This is probably the best documentation that shows how TI was going to replace the non released TI-88 with the ALC.  It's not dated, but I'm guessing the stapled complication is around 1981-1982.  It's a second generation copy, and some stuff was probably in another PDF somewhere as well.
