Does anyone have a collection of Intel Developers'
Insight CD-ROMs in
physical form or as images? The only physical CD-ROMs I have are a two
disk set from February 1998. I don't know what time period these were
available. Maybe mid or late 1990s to early 2000s? They have a variety
of information on them such as datasheets and manuals that might not
always be easy to find online anywhere anymore.
I have physical discs, although apparently not here. They were issued
quarterly and I had a subscription, so I should have them all. The span I
have recorded is Oct 1996 through to May 1999. Some 15 years ago I made
copies of all the PDF documents, so I can reach for any right away. For
any other stuff I'd have to check the actual discs at my other site.
As one example of something that I was recently unable
to find online
anywhere is a copy of either of these, which might have been available
on some of the Intel Developers' Insight CD-ROMs:
297372 16-Mbit Flash Product Family User?s Manual
297508 FLASHBuilder Design Resource Tool
Those are mentioned in various Intel flash memory datasheets and
databooks from around the 1995 timeframe.
Sadly neither seems to be among the files I have copied. I could yet
check Intel Dec 1995 Data on Demand discs I happen to have, and do have
here, but they are cumbersome to handle as they use a proprietary format
requiring a DOS app to access, and yet more hassle to get anything
exported (assuming I can recall how I did that many years ago), so it'll
take a little.
