ECD Corp. (Cambridge, Mass.)

The Micromind was ahead of its time. It had an interconnect bus that allowed the use of up to 15 processors working in parallel on the same system. A separate display processor handled graphics and text, and memory was expandable to 64MB at a time when 64K was considered more than most people would ever need. Some sources indicate that a Micromind II was built, but little information exists on it.
