Osprey Co-Processor highlights!



Code and Binary compatible with PDP-11 software and application code. Emulates a wide class of PDP-11 peripherals. Full architectural emulation supports all PDP-11 software. Q-bus and Unibus adapters available for special I/O needs 99% of the time plug and play!!

Al Morgan December 2000

38

Benefits of an Osprey!

Move to a high reliability, low maintenance cost system platform Investment protection
Keep existing peripherals Retain the existing code and licenses Preserve special or custom I/O devices using Q-bus and Unibus adapters

Access to new, cost-effective technology


Replace low-density, high-cost PDP-11 mass storage peripherals with modern commodity devices Migration of multiple PDP-11 systems to a single PC Code development can continue as on a real PDP-11, Or data from the PDP-11 can be piped into new applications on the PC without disturbing the PDP-11 code.

Summary
Trivial transition from PDP-11 to Osprey/PC Increased reliability using PC devices Improved performance

Preserves existing PDP-11 software investment

Reduced floorspace and electrical power
