HP1000 'Solutions'

The HP1000 Emulation is provided by the 'Kestral hardware emulator from Strobe Data Inc. The same Bit-Slice technology that powers the 'Osprey' PDP-11 emulator is used within the Kestral. This allows the Kestral system to run at A990 cpu/fpu speeds.

The Kestral also emulates many 'Classic' HP-IB and SCSI disks and controllers from both the M/E/F and 'A' Series computer systems. In 'Totally Emulated' solutions the entire 'Classic' peripherals are replaced by their emulated equivalents and are incorporated within the Kestral Server Class PC.

Those controllers etc. that are not emulated can be incorporated within either the existing backplane, or a Rackmount Kestral Chassis, (RMKC), and are connected using the Legacy Interface Card, (LIC).
