Advanced Digital Corp. --  History

ADC logo

Advanced Digital Corp. or ADC as they were often called, came late to the S-100 board business. They were founded in 1980 and made a big splash in 1983 and 1984 with a number of very capable Z80 master/slave SBC's. They were essentially gone in 1987 turning to IBM-PC add-on boards.  They did come out with one compete system the Super-Star. It had a 4 user master/slave Z80 setup of CPU boards, a 10MB Hard disk, a 5MB Removable cartridge and a 5" floppy (Osborne format) in a 6 slot S-100 motherboard.  They more or less competed head on with Teletek and Earth Computers which had similar systems. They were located first in Garden Grove, later Huntington Beach, CA.

Currently I have no further information about the company, its founders or what happened to them. If you have information you would like to share please let me know.
