Microsystems Proposed Standard for the S-100 Bus Preliminary Spefication, IEEE Task 696.1/D2

  title={Microsystems Proposed Standard for the S-100 Bus Preliminary Spefication, IEEE Task 696.1/D2},
  author={George Morrow and Howard Fullmer},
The computer bus commonly known as the S-100 was first introduced by MITS, Inc., with its Altair kit. This bus has since spread throughout the electronics industry and beyond. Today over a hundred manufacturers make products which claim to be compatible with the S-100 bus even though–until now– no complete specification has been available. The following table, figures, and notes constitute the preliminary draft of a proposed standard for the S-100 bus.
