Lomas Data Products - History
Lomas Data products or
LDP as they were often called, come late in the S-100 Computers era. They
lasted well into the mid 80's selling quite sophisticated systems for
commercial use. They were located in Marlboro and later Westborough, Mass. The
fonder was a Rick (or Richard?) Lomas. I have no further information about
the company itself. If anybody can contribute please let me know.
LDP as I said sold sophisticated boards, primarily 8086, 80186 and
greater boards. They eventually sold a complete systems, the LDP-2 and
the S100-PC which was completely IBM PC-DOS compatible.
A note of caution; some of the later LDP boards and systems were run without
the voltage regulators on the boards. Instead, 5V was supplied on a
non-standard S-100 bus. If you put these boards into a standard S-100
system without the regulators reattached, you will fry the board IC's.
