In the past, whenever Intel released a new microprocessor, they provided a development system to allow engineers,
students, and anyone else the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the new microprocessor.
The Intel MCS-85 System Design Kit (SDK) for the Intel 8085 CPU is a inexpensive, high performance single board computer (SBC) in kit form.
It contains all the components required to complete construction of the kit by the user.
The kit includes a 6-digit LED display and a 24-key keyboard for a direct insertion, examination, and execution of a
user's program. In addition, it can be directly interfaced with a teletype terminal.
Included is a preprogrammed ROM containing a system monitor for general software utilities and system diagnostics.
The large prototyping area allows additional expansion and custom-designed circuitry.
