Reading time: 3 minute Colossus was the first fully programmable digital electronic computer. Colossus computers were used by British cryptanalysts during World War II to help them break the Lorenz code.
Reading time: 4 minute Did you know that..? In 1991, in Romania, access to the Internet was made by telephone in other countries (usually Austria, Germany or the Netherlands) and that e-mail addresses were registered in the domains of these countries?
Reading time: 3 minute The aMIC microsystem was produced in numerous copies, at the Memory Factory in Timisoara during 1983–1984, being used in education, scientific research and in a series of industrial applications. The central processing unit was implemented with the Z80 microprocessor at a frequency of 2,5 MHz.
Reading time: 2 minute The CET 500 computer was made at the Institute of Atomic Physics in Bucharest in 1964, by a team led by Victor Toma. It is the first fully transistorized computer in Romania.
Reading time: 4 minute HC 88 was designed in 1989 at ICE Felix by eng. T. Mihu, eng. E. Dobrovie and eng. V.Cososchi. The HC 90 included the Z80A microprocessor manufactured by Zilog and Motorola memories. HC 91 was produced in 1991, having the same microprocessor (Z80A). HC 91+ was produced in 1994 with the Zilog Z80 - Z0840004PSC microprocessor, which operates at a speed of 4 Mhz. HC 2000 is an improved version of HC 91 systems.
Reading time: 3 minute PRAE ("beginning", in Latin) is a personal microcomputer designed by a team led by Miklós Patrubany, consisting of Nicolae Pop Baldi, Nicusor Socaciu, Liviu Dervesteanu, Emil Precup, Eugen Lupu and Ioan Ciascai from the Institute of Technology of Computing in Cluj-Napoca (ITC). The year of its launch was 1980, manufacturing approx. 200 pieces.
Reading time: 4 minute In the complete configuration HC-85 contained: central processing unit, built with Z80 microprocessor, 16 KB EPROM permanent memory and 48 KB main RAM memory, 40-key keyboard, with alphanumeric, control and functional meanings.
Reading time: 2 minute The DACICC-1 computer was conceived and built at the Cluj Computing Institute (Cluj-Napoca branch of the Romanian Academy) between 1959–1963 at the initiative of acad. Tiberiu Popoviciu. It is considered the first Romanian computer that used transistors and the first Romanian computer that had internal memory made of ferrite.
Reading time: 3 minute The Microelectronics (ME) enterprise was, in the '80s, the top of the semiconductor industry in Romania. Microelectronica SA had 3 sections: the "Manufacture of MOS structures" section, the "Assembly-Testing of MOS circuits" section (head of department, Gelu Voicu) and the "LED" section (head of initial section, engineer Herman Ciubotaru, then engineer Dan Stoenescu).
Reading time: 3 minute Among the most important scientific results obtained by Dr. Mihai N. Mihaila are those related to the discovery of the mechanisms of phononic excitation in noise 1 / f and the identification of the thermal vibration movement of surface and volume atoms as a fundamental microscopic source of noise 1 / f. f in solid.
