Edson de Castro worked closely with Gordon Bell on the PDP-5. De Castro then went on to design the initial version of the PDP-8. Afterward, de Castro was frustrated by DEC’s refusal to approve a family of 16-bit computers he wanted to design. So he and other DEC engineers launched Data General in 1968 and created their own 16-bit design.
