A Brief History of the PC-1500 (abridged from Wikipedia). The whole computer was designed around the LH5801, an 8-bit CPU similar to the Zilog Z80, but all laid-out in power-saving CMOS circuits. Equipped with 2KB (8K for the 1500A) of on-board RAM, the programming language is BASIC. Later German engineers provided an assembler for the machine. Later even a C compiler followed. An external slot is available and accept memory (from 4 KB to 32 KB) and rom modules. 60-pin expansion port for printer and tape drive. Connector for external power supply Official adaptor is Sharp EA-150, rated at 500 mA at 9 V, comes with the CE-150 printer interface.
