I've just picked up one these Miniterm portable
terminals but it would
appear that a couple of the EPROMs have gone bad. Anybody got one they
could grab ROM images from?
There are different models; can you post a picture of
the model plate?
Sorry, don't have my camera to hand at the moment but the nameplate says
'Miniterm ASR' and the rear of the machine has the model number as 1205
ASR means "automatic send/receive" and usually refers to machines with
some sort of local storage that can receive, store and resend a
message. ASR is probably a misnomer for this terminal unless there is
a way to attach local storage -- Teletype machines used paper tape,
Texas Instruments used audio cassettes, HP used DC100A mini cartridges
and Tektronix used floppy disks.
I had created an article for this terminal:
But I don't have much more information on it besides that. If you
could contribute some pictures to the wiki that would be awesome.
