NORD-1
Manufacturer: Norsk Data
Year Design Started: 1967
Year First Shipped: 1968
Form Factor: minicomputer
Word Size: 16 bit
Logic Type: TTL
Operating System: SINTRAN I or Nord TSS


The NORD-1 was a 16-bit minicomputer by Norsk Data, designed in 1967. The first machines were delivered to customers in 1968. It was the first commercially available computer made in Norway.

The NORD-1 could have from 4K to 64K 16-bit words of core memory. The NORD-1 came equipped as standard with floating point hardware support. It did not initially have support for virtual memory, but VM was added as an option by Norsk Data in 1969.

  • 16-bit address
  • 32-bit floating point
  • 16 interrupt levels
  • Core memory

In 1969 a NORD-1 was used in the world's first radar-based anti-collision system on the Wilh. Wilhelmsen ship M/S Taimyr.
