HP Viper board spotted on ebay


Search for item 300382229007. I think this ISA board was designed to run HP Basic with an HPIB interface on a PC, ie to effectively emulate a HP computer. No software is included but it has attracted one bidder at £75.

An unusual item.




I used one of those for awhile at work around 1990. This was after I learned the HP-71 BASIC, so the HP BASIC 5.1 on the Viper board was an absolutely huge disappointment. The Rocky Mountain group could have stood to learn a few things from the Corvallis group.
