The SS-3004 MEMO PROCESSOR with Data Communication Solid State Software Cartridge (SSSC) was developed by Texas Instruments for its CC-40 Compact Computer System and transforms it into a portable, powerful word processor and data communications terminal.
Don't miss an early prototype of the SS-3004 SSSC with a "DATA COMMUNICATION" label instead od the final "MEMO PROCESSOR" wording.
The word processing portion of Memo Processor allows to create, print and store documents using the following features:
• Up to 32 tab stops
• Line length variable from 9 to 80 characters
• Automatic word wrap at end of lines
• Automatic page size control
• Insertion, deletion, and overstrike of characters
• Rearrange text using block move, copy, and delete functions
• Search function allows location of character strings
• Document printing on all CC-40 compatible printers
The communications portion of Memo Processor allows the CC-40 to access computers such as:
• Central timesharing systems including TEXNET
• Corporate computers
• Personal computers
Dismantling this Solid State Software Cartridge manufactured in
March 1984 by Texas Instruments in their Lubbock, Texas facility, reveals a small printed circuit board (PCB) with
a HN61256P ROM (Read-Only Memory) manufactured by Hitachi, Japan.
The HN61256P uses a CMOS process resulting in a very low power consumption of 7.5 mW and features a capacity of 32k Bytes with an access time of 3.5 us.
