The ND-110 Satellite is a family of 16-bit minicomputers that are ideal for use in the office environment. It consists of four models, model S5, S9, T9 and T17. The models support from 5 to 17 terminals / printers, provide 2 MB main memory and from 60 to 125 MB disk storage capacity. Full upgrading is possible from one model to another. Main memory can be expanded to 24 MB.[1]

Features

  • 16 bit microprogrammed CPU
  • up to 17 terminal / printers
  • up to 125 MB disk capacity
  • Up to 24 MB physical memory, using 8 MB memory modules
  • 7 position card rack implemented with standard ND-100 bus system. 4 (5 in model T17) of these positions are used in a standard basic system
  • the system automatically restarts after a short power failure. This is made possible by a battery system included in the configuration.
  • each user is provided with 128 KB of logical address space for programs and another 128 KB for data.
  • both 48-bit and 32-bit floating format are available on the system. 32-bit format is standard.
  • there are 16 priority interrupt-levels in the hardware. The time needed to change a level is 5 microseconds.
  • mass-storage devices such as disk and floppy disk access the memory via the DMA (Direct Memory Access) bus. This off-loads the CPU significantly.
