What is a Cub?
Cub is a new workstation under development in SDD. The purpose of the design is to provide a
truly Ethernet compatible, low-cost workstation for the mainstream of the office automation market.
Cub users have at their fingertips, not only a powerful personal computer, but also network access
to servers and resources on the Ethernet.
Cub provides an 8086 based process~r running at 4.5 MHz. This is a 16 bit microprocessor with a
full range of instructions and addressing modes. Main memory consists of 262.144 bytes (8 bits data
plus 1 bit parity) of dynamic random access memo|
