Nope. I had wondered if they were former GE Medical Systems people, 
being they were so close to their New Berlin plant.

We have two in the CHM collection. This is the first time I've ever seen 
one work. I was thinking it might be fun to try to get FORTH running on it.

I may also mod mine so that it puts out proper RS-232 levels with a
piggyback board on the 1988. They just power it with +5v, which doesn't
work at all talking to my Mac. An old Wyse-75 wasn't so fussy.

If you look at the schematic, they did some pretty weird things, like
using a 2758 for address decoding, and then there's the floppy disk
interface.. No error checking?

1980 seems really late to be trying to build a system like this.
It looks like a design OSI would have come up with.
