7861Tarbell Controller / 8080 System / CP/M 2.2?
- Apr 23, 2008Herb (all),
I found in my stuff a Tarbell disk controller and docs that refers to CP/M
1.4, with directions for installation and testing on an Altair or IMSAI
with 8080. Interestingly I also found a few CP/M 2.2 disks labeled
Then I found this
Before this video I did not know that there was a 2.2 version of CP/M for
the 8080 computer. For some reason I thought few people if any used
anything other than a z-80 processor system to run CP/M 2.x - I thought
that CP/M 2.2 would only work on the z-80.
I guess I was wrong!
Did anyone in this group regularly use in the late 70's early 80's an
8080-based system and CP/M 2.2 (not a Z-80) with Tarbell or other
controller? What system and when?
