Replace your HP1000 with a Windows PC
The REVIVER-1000 emulates a complete HP1000 computer system on a Windows PC. The HP1000 CPU, memory, disks, tapes, serial lines, and Ethernet controller are emulated by mapping their functionality onto a PCI Co-Processor board and WINDOWS’ peripherals. Since the Co-Processor recognizes native HP1000 binary instructions, the REVIVER-1000 is able to execute existing HP1000 software. No retranslation of your existing programs is required!
For A-Series and M/E/F Systems with I/O adapters that must remain with the system, the REVIVER-1000 offers a rackmount chassis option which contains an HP1000 backplane (A-Series or M/E/F, depending on your system type) and an integrated Windows PC. A high-speed Firewire adapter connects the backplane slots back to the Co-Processor Board.
