Description

Includes floppies, documentation, cables, and paper tape. The Smaky 6 was based on a Zilog Z-80, with 4KB of EPROM and 16KB of RAM (32KB via extension board). The screen had two modes: 20 lines of 64 characters (with lower case) or 356 by 120 graphics display. A nice operating system was developed, supporting floppies and diskless workstations on the Cobus local network (128 kbps) with a Nova 1200 server (students had access to fifteen diskless workstations).
