CompuPro - SP186 Board
I have no information about this board currently. If you have a
manual I will describe the board and place it here for others to review.
This board was designed to connect via a serial interface to a
dumb terminal, and the connected user would have full dedicated use of the
power of the 80186 on the board along with the on-board memory, using the
CP/M operating system. What the user could also do, however, was get shared
access to any other peripherals supported by other S-100 boards on the same
S-100 bus the SP186 was plugged into – such as printers, floppy drives, and
hard drives. Compupro’s Concurrent CP/M and Concurrent DOS operating
systems supported use of multiple SP186s on a single S100 bus in addition to
the system’s primary CPU (usually a CPU286).
