I just received a new system, one I've been

but seen very little about. A 6502 based Micro Technology Unlimited MTU-130.
Received the system, monitor, dual 8" floppy drives, a printer and piles of
documentation and software all from the original owner who used it for
biochemistry research. Particularly can't wait to try out the light pen
which came standard with the system.
Does anyone else on the list have one? Any other doc or software available?
I will have to catalog everything but will scan anything that isn't already
Amazing, there are two of them then! I just got my hands on one of these not very long
ago, but I have nothing but a 12" MTU-badged monitor and the main console. No
drives, no software. I'd love to see the scans of the documentation, particularly if
there are sufficient specifications on what kind of drive might be able to be connected
that I could get it running.
This is great news, I eagerly await -- and deeply appreciate in advance -- whatever
scans/imaging you can do.
There's a brief article about the MTU-130 in Compute! here:
I made some feeble attempts to reach the current MTU company to see if anyone still there
had any memory of them (or docs or software), but I never heard back. They do list it
among their past accomplishments, however:
Here are some pictures of mine:
The last photo shows the degree of success I had after plugging it in and powering it on
-- doesn't look like the CPU is awake.
This is great to hear, I kind of thought I was going to be the only one who had one of
these and would never get any further information about it. I'm very much looking
forward to reading more documentation!
