ARM-10 variants

So, it appears that there three (at least) different kinds of ARM10:

  • MIT-AI's second moby was apparently an ARM-10, but it was very definitely different from the ARM-10L (one of which MIT-MC had);
  • The ARM-10L: there's an image of one the CHM has/had (image here; inside here);
  • Eric Smith's KL was reported to have an "Ampex ARM10 external memory box, which provided four megawords of ECC-protected semiconductor memory (using 64K DRAMs) [which] attaches to KI10-style memory busses via the DMA20 memory bus interface" (definitely different from an ARM-10L, which was a core unit)

There nothing about Ampex memory in the Ampex folder at BitSavers, and Web searches turn up very little too.

Clearly, all very different devices, sharing only the name 'ARM10'. Jnc (talk) 20:46, 20 April 2021 (CEST)
