I began processing a new collection of user manuals and guides for computer hardware and software from the 1970s-1990s. At 50 boxes, it’s a fairly large collection. So far, I’ve found manuals and guides on CMOS Logic Circuits, digital signal processors like the TMS320c4x, Linear circuits, MATLAB, and Solaris. I also found a few packages of Micropower Voltage References. Frankly, I don’t know what most of this stuff is, but after a little checking, I found a few of these manuals on the Internet Archive. Still, I imagine some of this won’t be so easy to find, especially the older materials. Here is a preview:
The collection may turn out to be a great resource for those interested in technology from the heady days of early microprocessing, but until it’s fully processed, it won’t be available to the public. The Woodson does have other collections of technical manuals open for research, like this one.
