Computers and Terminals


Left AlignDatapoint 3300 Terminal, 1968 * Computer Terminal Corporation's first product was the highly successful Datapoint 3300 text terminal. Introduced in 1968, the 3300 was designed to compete against the purvasive and popular ASR33 electromechanical teletype used in time share and direct connect to mainframe computer configurations. Available accessories were: a steaming data tape system, thermal printer and 300 BAUD acoustic modem.

Right AlignDatapoint 2200 Computer Version 1 * Computer Terminal Corporation's second major product was the Datapoint 2200 version 1. Introduced in 1970, it was the first integrated desktop personal computer system to arrive on the market and the basis for the later Intel 8008 CPU (1971). It incorporated an 8 bit fully progamable CPU with 8KB program storage, a 12 line, 80 character full alphanumeric CRT display,high quality keyboard, dual random access program/data storage cassette tape system and a bidirection parallel port for periphial expansion.


Left AlignDatapoint 2200 Computer Version 2 * The Datapoint 2200 Version 2 was Computer Terminal Corporation's improved version of the version 1 computer. The primary change from the version 1 system is the replacement of the version 1 serial CPU to a full 8 bit parallel CPU and the replacement of the 8KB MOS shift register based program memory to 16KB of random access DRAM memory. The result was a much faster and more capable system. The version 2 computer was introduced in 1972 and predates the similar CPU architecture Intel 8080.

Right AlignDatapoint 1100 Computer * The Datapoint 1100 system utilized the 2200 Version 2 computer, less the integrated cassette tape system and adding a consol fitted with four 8" SS/SD floppy disk drives. This integrated system was typically combined with an 8 serial port terminal interface and modem for use with Datashare software.



Left Align2200-1100 Periphial Adaptors * A wide veriety of periphial adaptors were available to turn the stand alone 1100 and 2200 systems in to powerful productivity systems. Modems allowed access to time share computers, 8 serial port adaptors supported 8 data entry terminals. Also available were more specialized adaptors. These adaptors interfaced to Datapoint's bi-directional parallel port, sharing the program addressable bus with other 2200 periphials such as hard disk drives, tape drives and printers.
