DEC PDP-1 Collection

DEC PDP-1 Collection

The PDP-1 archive contains documents, photos, movies and music relating to Digital Equipment Corporation's groundbreaking PDP-1 computer. The launch of the PDP-1 (Programmed Data Processor-1) computer in 1959 marked a radical shift in the philosophy of computer design: it was the first commercial computer that focused on interaction with the user rather than the efficient use of computer cycles. It was also Digital Equipment Corporation's first computer.
